    • Abstract:
      We studied the age-specific population-based incidence of bacterial enteric infections caused by Shigella, Salmonella and Campylobacter, in Jerusalem. During 1990-2008, 32 408 cases were reported (incidence rate 232.1/100 000 per annum). The patterns of Shigella (47.4% of cases), Salmonella (34.4%) and Campylobacter (18.2%) infections evolved noticeably. Campylobacter rates increased from 15.0 to 110.8/100 000 per annum. Salmonella rates increased from 74.2 to 199.6/100 000 in 1995 then decreased to 39.4/100 000. Shigella showed an endemic/epidemic pattern ranging between 19.7 and 252.8/100 000. Most patients (75%) were aged <15 years; children aged <5 years comprised 56.4% of cases, despite accounting for only 12.9% of the population. Campylobacter was the predominant organism in infants aged <1 year and Shigella in the 1-4 years group. The hospitalization rates were: Shigella, 1.8%; Campylobacter, 2.3%; Salmonella, 6.9%. Infants were 2.2 times more likely to be hospitalized than children aged 1-14 years (P=0.001). Household transmission occurred in 21.2% of Shigella cases compared with 5% in the other bacteria.
