Population-based survey of invasive bacterial diseases, Greenland, 1995-2004.

Meyer A, Ladefoged K, Poulsen P, Koch A - Emerging Infect. Dis. (2008)

Bottom Line: Invasive bacterial disease occurs frequently among native populations in the Arctic.Although a variety of bacteria are involved in invasive bacterial disease in Greenland, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and other staphylococci are responsible for most cases (69%); incidence varies according to region and ethnicity.

Figure 1: Incidence by age, invasive bacterial disease, Greenland, 1995–2004.

Mentions: Twenty different bacterial species or groups were identified (22 isolates could not be characterized by species); the most numerous were S. pneumoniae, staphylococci, and E. coli (Table). For most bacteria, the invasive disease incidence varied by age in a U-shaped fashion (Figure 1). Most N. meningitidis cases (73%) occurred in children <10 years of age, the 4 cases of H. influenzae group B infection occurred in children <1 year of age, and the youngest case-patient with GBS was 12 years of age.
