Cas de diftèria en un nen no vacunat a les comarques de Girona: investigació del cas i mesures de control
This article reviews the investigation of an unvaccinated 6 year-old boy from Olot (Girona, Spain) who suffered from diphtheria. The boy wasn’t linked to another case of diphtheria. He was schooled and used to attend extracurricular activities. Four days before symptoms the child joined a summer camp organized by the school. Control actions were taken to those who had had a closest and more extended contact in time with him. Ten Corynebacterium diphtheriae carriers were identified. The same control actions were applied to those living with the carriers and people from their close environment.
