South Sudan: Unknown Hemorrhagic Illness

Regarding an ongoing outbreak of hemorrhagic illness in South Sudan, a differential diagnosis list generated by Gideon [Global Infectious Disease & Epidemiology Network]http://www.GideonOnline.com, includes 2 lesser-known pathogens which have been associated with single small clusters of hemorrhagic fever in Africa: Bas-Congo virus (rhabdovirus) and Lujo virus (arenavirus). In 2008, 4 of 5 patients died of Lujo virus infection in a South African hospital, following transfer of an index patient from Zambia. The following year, 2 of 3 villagers in DR Congo died in an outbreak of Bas Congo virus infection. If tests for other pathogens continue to be negative, these 2 agents might be considered.

Measles in Cambodia

Major outbreaks of measles were reported in Cambodia during the 1980’s.  As vaccination uptake steadily increased to levels in excess of 90%, disease incidence in the country is currently similar to the low rates reported by neighboring countries [1,2]  See graphs [3]:
