Título Laboratory outbreak of Q fever acquired from sheep
Información bibliográfica May 1982, Vol.1, p.1004-1006. 7 ref.
Resumen 91 staff working in a university department in which gravid sheep were used for foetal respiratory studies, were examined after an outbreak of Q fever. Of these, 28 had complement-fixing antibodies to the phase II antigen of Coxiella burnetii in their serum. Symptoms compatible with C. burnetii infection occurred in 14 of these patients. Symtomatic infections were related to the delivery of twin foetuses in one laboratory, and some evidence of infection was apparent in workers in other parts of the building. Subjects with serological evidence of infection were treated with tetracycline for 4 weeks.
