Outbreak of botulism in Kenyan nomads

, : Outbreak of botulism in Kenyan nomads. Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 73(2): 145-148

During disease surveillance in Kenya, a series of deaths were investigated among a group of nomadic Gabra in Marsabit. The cause was identified as botulism (Clostridium botulinum Type A), contracted from sour milk prepared traditionally in a gourd. Reported outbreaks of botulism in Africa would appear to be extremely rare.

In the adult mouse and rabbit, a single local irradiation (750 or 1500 R Rx) is able to induce a latent lesion in the normal striated muscle. This lesion does show up when the muscle is induced to regenerate after a delay varying from 4 hr. to 10...
