Abstract

The analysis of 115 reports on R. equi infection in man showed that only 59 (51 %) contained data on the possible exposure to animals, manure or soil. The positive contact was reported in 35 cases (30 %) and denied in 24 cases (21 %). The most common type of contact was the exposure to horses or horse manure, being mentioned in 18 cases. The next most frequent type of exposure was farming. In the animal exposure positive group the median age was 30 years, male to female ratio (M:F) was 3.38 and the clinical outcome was fatal in 10 cases out of 35 (29 %). In the group of patient without the animal exposure the median age was 39 years, M:F was 3.0 and the outcome was fatal in 11 cases out of 24 (46 %). The differences were not significant. There was also no difference in the presence of HIV infection between patients with and without the animal exposure, HIV infection being reported in 16 out of 35patients with the positive animal exposure and in 12 out of 24 of patients without such exposure. It is concluded that with a better epidemiological history the true percentage of R. equi infected persons withpositive animal exposure may be higher.
