BACKGROUND: In Algeria, Mediterranean spotted fever (MSF), caused by Rickettsia conorii conorii and transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus, is endemic. However, the documentation of cases is rare due to a lack of laboratory facilities. Our aim was to screen for rickettsioses in patients with fever, rash and a possible inoculation eschar. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2013 and 2015, patients with a fever and a rash presenting at hospitals in the Tizi-Ouzou region were prospectively included in our study...

BACKGROUND: Viral respiratory tract infections are known to be common in Hajj pilgrims while the role of bacteria is less studied. METHODS: Clinical follow-up, adherence to preventive measures and PCR-based pharyngeal bacterial carriage pre- and post-Hajj, were assessed in a cohort of 119 French Hajj pilgrims. RESULTS: 55% had an indication for pneumococcal vaccination. Occurrence of respiratory symptoms was 76.5%, with cough (70.6%) and sore throat (44...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological data on pediatric travelers are lacking, especially from Oceania. We aimed to evaluate travelers presenting to a pediatric emergency department in Sydney during a time of heightened travel surveillance. METHOD: Cases between December 2014 and February 2015 were ascertained by screening medical records for key terms and visa status, as well as laboratory data for malaria testing. Cases were restricted to communicable diseases and evidence of travel within 21 days...

BACKGROUND: The World Health Organization conditionally recommends systematic screening of tuberculosis (TB) and Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI) among asylum seekers (AS) from high-burden countries, but the effectiveness of different screening approaches is controversial. METHODS: We report the results of a retrospective cohort analysis of TB and LTBI screening among consecutive AS in Brescia, Italy during 2015-2016. TB screening was based on symptoms, LTBI screening on the tuberculin skin test (TST)...

BACKGROUND: Intestinal colonization by extended-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (ESC-R-Ent) has been attributed to travel to high prevalence countries. However, the dynamics of the microbiota changes during ESC-R-Ent colonization and whether there is a particular bacterial composition which is associated with subsequent colonization is unknown. METHODS: Forty healthy volunteers living in Switzerland underwent screening before and after a trip to India, and also 3, 6 and 12 months after traveling...

BACKGROUND: Migrants may be underimmunised and at higher risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, yet there has been no comprehensive examination of what policies are currently implemented across Europe targeting child and adult migrants. We analysed vaccination policies for migrants in 32 EU/EEA countries and Switzerland. METHODS: Using framework analysis, we did a comparative analysis of national policies and guidelines pertaining to vaccination in recently arrived migrants through a systematic guideline and literature review and by approaching national experts...

BACKGROUND: In rural South Africa, people are in close contact with tick-infested donkeys. This study aimed to investigate the presence of spotted fever group Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia and Coxiella species in these arthropods. METHOD: 376 ticks (7 species) from donkeys from Limpopo Province (South Africa) were pooled and analyzed using PCR assays for the bacterium detection. RESULTS: Rickettsia africae was amplified in 6 Amblyomma hebraeum, 1 Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and 5 Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi pools...

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of intestinal and urinary parasites in newly arrived asylum seekers. METHODS: A total of 364 newly arrived migrants hosted at the Asylum Seekers Centre of Castelnuovo di Porto (Italy) were screened during 8 months period for intestinal and urinary parasites...
