Four decades of shigellosis in Israel : epidemiology of a growing public health problem.
Despite the improved standard of living in Israel, shigellosis remains a common disease.
Examination of trends in the incidence of shigellosis in Israel between 1951 and 1987 showed a period of declining rates followed by an increase in the reported incidence beginning around 1969.
This increase was mainly due to Shigella sonnei; rates of infection with Shigella flexneri remained relatively constant.
Trends showed marked differences between age groups and between ethnic groups.
