Abstract

PURPOSE: To present the epidemiological characteristics of the humane brucellosis with ill at the age of 15 treated at the infective ward in Stip. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 10 years period of time at the infective ward have been treated 1598 people who have brucellosis. From them 240(15,0%) are children at the age of 15. For diagnosis of the illness, standard clinical biochemical and serological researches have been used ( BAB, Wright, Brucella cap). RESULTS: Out of 240 children treated of humane brucellosis in the infective ward, 152(63,3%) are males and 88(36,6%) are females. According to the age 13 (5,4%)are at the age O-5 years, 101 (42,0) are at the age 5-10 and 126 (52,5%) children are at the age 10-15. The youngest patient is a baby of three months fed with uncooked goat milk. According to the residence all of them come from villages and farmer families which have ill members of brucellosis and a positive epidemiological survey is also present. With children at the age of 5 the alimentary way of infection is present ( nutrition with uncooked milk and raw cheese). With the older children except the alimentary way of transmission there is also the contact because in families like these the children starting from early age are involved in breeding the cattle.. CONCLUSION: The humane brucellosis doesn’t spare the children even from the youngest age. Dominant way of transmission is the alimentary but also the contact should not be neglected. The medical officers should work far more on the problem of rising the health culture and education of the population from the rural areas in order to learn how to protect themselves from this disease.
