Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The incidence and follow-up data of the temporary urinary carrier state resulting in a series of 76 acute typhoid and paratyphoid fever cases in Egypt is presented.
  • 2.  Similar note is made on 5 additional non-acute paratyphoid urinary carriers who were discovered.
  • 3.  Observations on the numbers of organisms excreted in the urine and the effect of sodium bicarbonate on numbers of organisms excreted is given.
  • 4.  The relative ineffectiveness of combined therapy with streptomycin and sulfadiazine in several paratyphoid urinary carriers is noted.
  • 5.  The apparent high incidence of urinary enteric carriers in Egypt is emphasized and the possible etiologic association between urinary carriers and urinary schistosomiasis is suggested.
