In general, some cases of coccidiosis are associated with severe Histomonas: Histomoniasis is common in gallina- clinical disease, while other birds will pass numerous ceous birds. The induced disease is called blackhead oocysts in the feces and remain asymptomatic. In some Isospora is most common in Passeriformes, Psittaci- birds, this parasite is considered a major pathogen formes and Piciformes, and Eimeria is most common while in other birds it is considered an incidental in Galliformes and Columbiformes. When lesions occur, they generally include may be asymptomatic or develop clinical signs of hepatomegaly (with necrosis) and ascites. Adults are gen- ovoid protozoa that infect and may cause disease in erally asymptomatic carriers that shed oocysts in the the mucosal epithelial cells lining the gastrointesti- feces. Prevalence can be high in young birds during nal, respiratory and urinary tracts of birds.

General Information Respiratory tract infections are common buy discount azulfidine 500mg on line, usually mild purchase 500mg azulfidine otc, and self-limit- ing 500 mg azulfidine mastercard, although they may require symptomatic treatment with paracetamol or a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory. These include the common cold (80% rhi- noviruses and 20% coronaviruses), adenoviruses, influenza, parainfluenza, and, during the summer and early autumn, enteroviruses. Special attention should be given to detainees with asthma or the who are immunocompromised, because infection in these people may be more serious particularly if the lower respiratory tract is involved. The following section includes respiratory pathogens of special note because they may pose a risk to both the detainee and/or staff who come into close contact. General Information and Epidemiology There are five serogroups of Neisseria meningitidis: A, B, C, W135, and Y. In the United Kingdom, most cases of meningitis are sporadic, with less than 5% occurring as clusters (outbreaks) amongst school children. Between 1996 and 2000, 59% of cases were group B, 36% were group C, and W135 and A accounted for 5%. There is a seasonal variation, with a high level of cases in winter and a low level in the summer. The greatest risk group are the under 5 year olds, with a peak incidence under 1 year old. In Sub-Saharan Africa, the dis- ease is more prevalent in the dry season, but in many countries, there is back- ground endemicity year-round. Routine vaccination against group C was introduced in the United King- dom November 1999 for everybody up to the age of 18 years old and to all first- year university students. As a result of the introduction of the vaccination pro- gram, there has been a 90% reduction of group C cases in those younger than under 18 years and an 82% reduction in those under 1 year old (60,61). An outbreak of serogroup W135 meningitis occurred among pilgrims on the Hajj in 2000. Symptoms After an incubation period of 3–5 days (63,64), disease onset may be either insidious with mild prodromal symptoms or florid. The rash may be petechial or purpuric and characteristically does not blanche under pressure. Meningitis in infants is more likely to be insidious in onset and lack the classical signs. Even with prompt antibiotic treatment, the case fatality rate is 3–5% in meningitis and 15–20% in those with septicemia. Period of Infectivity A person should be considered infectious until the bacteria are no longer present in nasal discharge. Routes of Transmission The disease is spread through infected droplets or direct contact from carriers or those who are clinically ill. It requires prolonged and close contact, so it is a greater risk for people who share accommodation and utensils and kiss. It must also be remembered that unprotected mouth-to-mouth resuscita- tion can also transmit disease. Nevertheless, the risk of acquiring infection even from an infected and sick individual is low, unless the individual has carried out mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Any staff mem- ber who believes he or she has been placed at risk should report to the occupa- tional health department (or equivalent) or the nearest emergency department at the earliest opportunity for vaccination. If the detainee has performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, prophylactic antibiotics should be given before receiving vaccination. Rifampicin, ciprofloxacin, and ceftriaxone can be used; however, ciprofloxacin has numer- ous advantages (66). Only a single dose of 500 mg (adults and children older than 12 years) is needed and has fewer side effects and contraindications than rifampicin. Ceftriaxone has to be given by injection and is therefore best avoided in the custodial setting. If the staff member is pregnant, advice should be sought from a consultant obstetrician, because ciprofloxacin is not recommended (67). It is a notifiable dis- ease under legislation specific to individual countries; for example, in the United Kingdom, this comes under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act of 1984. However, these statis- tics are likely to be an underestimate because they depend on the accuracy of reporting, and in poorer countries, the surveillance systems are often in- adequate because of lack of funds. Some physicians found themselves caught in a dilemma of confidentiality until 1997, when the codes of practice were updated to encourage reporting with patient consent (68). However, since the early 1990s, numbers have slowly increased, with some 6800 cases reported in 2002 (69). A similar picture was initially found in the United States, when there was a reversal of a long-standing downward trend in 1985. However, between 1986 and 1992, the number of cases increased from 22,201 to 26,673 (72). It may take weeks or months before disease becomes apparent, or infection may remain dormant for years before reactivation in later life especially if the person becomes debilitated or immunocompromised. Routes of Transmission The main route is airborne through infected droplets, but prolonged or close contact is needed. Nonrespiratory disease is not considered a risk unless the mycobacterium is aerosolized under exceptional circumstances (e.
