Meningococcal disease in Ontario during the winter of 1988-1989

, : Meningococcal disease in Ontario during the winter of 1988-1989. Canada Diseases Weekly Report 15(11): 59-62

In Ontario, Canada, from December 1988 through February 1989 there were 85 reported cases of meningococcal meningitis compared with 35 in 1987-88 and 41 in 1986-87. Although the increased incidence affected 29 of the 43 health units in Ontario, no such increase was noted anywhere else in the country. Most (79%) of the cases were under 20 years old; 34% were under 5 and 11 patients died. Of the 69 isolates that were grouped 30 were group B, 38 group C and 1 group A.

The effects of fertilizers and crop rotation on winter rape yield were investigated in 1989-92 in Lithuania. Application of 50 or 100 t manure/ha decreased winter survival of the crop. Application of mineral nitrogen had most effect in increasing...

Histologically, it can be confused with a malignant mesenchymal tumor because of increased cellularity, nuclear pleomorphism, and hy...
