  1. Epidemiology of poliomyelitis in a slum of Bombay.

    Article - En anglais

    A disease prevalence and immunization coverage survey in a typical slum in Bombay in the year 1988 revealed 93 children with residual poliomyelitis amongst 14,439 children below 9 years of age, indicating high (33.0/100,000 population) annual incidence of poliomyelitis.

    Only 62 (66.6%) of these 93 lame children sought admission in hospital during the acute phase of illness.

    The high incidence was attributed to a low immunization (OPV) coverage level in the most vulnerable age group.
