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.

ABSTRACT
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 2: Incidence by year, invasive bacterial disease, Greenland, 1995–2004.

Mentions: The overall incidence of invasive bacterial isolates increased during the study period from 17.9/100,000 in 1995 to 79/100,000 in 2004; the most marked increase occurred in 1997–1998, when incidence almost doubled. The increase occurred mainly in blood culture samples; cerebrospinal fluid samples remained constant over time. The increase in isolates from blood cultures occurred equally in Nuuk and in the districts and for most bacteria, although the incidence of N. meningitidis remained constant (Figure 2). H. influenzae group B isolates were not identified after 1998 (childhood vaccination was introduced in 1997); the 5 GAS isolates first appeared in 2001–2004.
