1/6. A case of intrauterine fetal death associated with maternal campylobacter coli bacteraemia.

    Campylobacter species are known to cause infectious abortion in domestic animals. In humans, Campylobacter are an important cause of enteritis, an occasional cause of systemic infection and have had a rare association with abortion and perinatal infection. A case history of spontaneous abortion, at 26 weeks' duration, associated with maternal bacteraemia, due to campylobacter coli is presented. Transmission, pathogenesis, treatment, and the need for further investigation are discussed.

2/6. Bilateral prosthetic knee infection by campylobacter fetus.

    We present the first documented case of a bilateral prosthetic knee joint infection with campylobacter fetus. Our patient's risk factors included age, the presence of prosthetic joints, and potential exposure through his contact with farm animals. It is important to be aware of the possibility of C fetus joint infections in high-risk patients who present with pain after total joint arthroplasty.

3/6. Investigation of zoonotically acquired campylobacter jejuni enteritis with serotyping and restriction endonuclease dna analysis.

    Five strains of campylobacter jejuni were isolated from asymptomatic coyotes being maintained in a vivarium. According to the results of serotyping with thermostable antigens and of bacterial chromosomal restriction endonuclease analysis, one of the C. jejuni strains isolated from the coyotes was responsible for enteritis in a laboratory animal technician providing husbandry for the laboratory-maintained coyotes.

4/6. Isolation of "campylobacter hyointestinalis" from a human.

    We isolated "campylobacter hyointestinalis" from the rectal culture of a homosexual man with proctitis. Phenotypic characterization of the isolate was confirmed by dna hybridization by using the taxonomic spot blot. "C. hyointestinalis" was previously isolated only from animals but should be considered in the identification of Campylobacter species isolated from humans.

5/6. Occurrence and impact of zoonoses in pet dogs and cats at US Air Force bases.

    A descriptive epidemiologic study was conducted to quantitate the occurrence of zoonoses in pet animals (almost exclusively dogs and cats) at 30 Air Force bases in nine regions of the united states during 1980 and 1981. Reviews of reported cases of pet-associated zoonoses in humans at these bases were included. Occurrence of a zoonotic disease in dogs and cats was expressed as a ratio of reported cases per 100 rabies vaccinations (cs/Crv). overall, the four zoonoses reported most frequently from these pets were hookworms, roundworms, tapeworms, and fleas. Annual ratios revealed geographic variations: for example, hookworms in dogs and cats in the southeast ranged from 12.3 to 9.4 cs/Crv; in the northern Great Plains, hookworms ranged from 0.9 to 0.4 cs/Crv. dermatomycoses in the southeast ranged from 1.3 to 1.1 cs/Crv, and in alaska from 0.3 to 0.2 cs/Crv. Quarterly zoonoses occurrence revealed seasonal variations in several regions. Reports of zoonoses in people from these bases indicated that five less frequent zoonoses in dogs and cats (microsporum canis dermatomycosis, fleas, sarcoptes scabiei var canis, gram-positive bacterial infections, and rabies) presented greater acute threats to humans than did the four most frequent zoonoses reported from their pets.

6/6. Septic abortion associated with campylobacter fetus subspecies fetus infection: case report and review of the literature.

    In contrast to the situation in cattle, goat and sheep, campylobacter fetus subspecies fetus only rarely causes disease in humans. While a major inducer of septic abortion in animals, only a minority of clinical infections in humans are found during pregnancy. Eleven cases have so far been described in pregnant women. Clinical symptomatology is usually mild during gestation but often leads to premature labor. Here we present a multigravida with positive cultures for C. fetus who went into septic shock. She completely recovered after delivery of a C. fetus-infected fetus at 18 weeks' gestation and treatment with a combination of cephazolin and gentamicin. C. fetus infections should be suspected in patients with intensive contact with (infected) cattle or after intake of unpasteurized dairy products.
