[Studies on clinical epidemiology of Tsutsugamushi disease of the autumn-winter type in the easten suburbs of Jinan].

Abstract

This paper reported the epidemiological characteristics of 154 cases under investigation for tsutsugamushi disease of autumn-winter type in the eastern suburb of Jinan. Results showed that the characteristics differed greatly from those in the southern part of China. Majority of patients had toxic symptoms due to infections but specific characteristics were less obvious. Eschars and ulcers appeared only in 14.94% of the cases and occurred only in autumn-winter season. Clinically mild cases constituted the majority. Cases not only distributed sporadically, but also had multi-organ lesions (MOL). Young peasants seemed to be most vulnerable. The pathogen of the disease belonged to low virulent strain. Serological typing belonged to the Gilliam type. The diagnosis and the treatment of the disease were discussed. Specific serum IgG of the disease was detected 6 years after convalescence.
