[two cases of crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever (cchf) in two tourists in senegal in 2004].two cases of crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever (cchf) occurred in two french tourists during their visit in senegal in november 2004. febrile and hemorrhagic syndrome with ulorrhagia, petechiae, haematemesis, haematomas associated with biological signs of disseminated intramuscular coagulation were observed. for the first case who had a medical evacuation to france before diagnosis, crimean-congo virus infection was revealed by laboratory tests performed by the national reference center for hemor ...200919739410
domestic animals as carriers of bordetella species in senegal.despite intense efforts to maintain a high level of vaccine coverage against human whooping cough, rural senegalese areas are still endemic for bordetella pertussis. one explanation being the potential existence of animal reservoirs, the objective of this work was to precise the carriage by domestic animals of bacteria belonging to the genus bordetella in senegal. bacteriological samples (swabs and aspirates) were obtained from various domestic animals living in different parts of the country. n ...200616796515
risk factors for campylobacter spp. infection in senegalese broiler-chicken flocks.our objective was to identify the risk factors for campylobacter infection in senegalese broiler flocks. seventy broiler farms were studied around dakar from january 2000 to december 2001 around dakar. a questionnaire was administered to the farmers, and samples of fresh droppings were taken to assess the flocks' campylobacter status. about 63% of the flocks were infected by campylobacter spp.; campylobacter jejuni was the most-prevalent species (p < 0.05). an elevated risk of campylobacter infe ...200415219966
a survey of seasonal changes in nematode faecal egg count levels of sheep and goats in senegal.a survey of the gastro-intestinal nematodes in domestic sheep and goats of the sahelian zone of senegal was undertaken. their prevalence and the egg production were estimated by faecal egg count in 2234 sheep and 577 goats slaughtered at the dakar slaughterhouse during a 12 month period. the highest prevalence (%) and highest mean egg counts (epg) were recorded at the end of the wet season. amongst the species of nematodes encountered there are two of potential importance: haemonchus contortus a ...19836686379
the epidemiology of human and animal schistosomiasis in the senegal river basin.the results of four field surveys in senegal are reported. 1. a snail survey in various parts of the senegal river basin, including the senegal river, temporary rain-fed pools, swamps, irrigation canals and drains, ricefields and lac de guier was carried out. three species of snails were commonly found: bulinus guernei was the most common, occurring in permanent habitats, bulinus senegalensis occurring in laterite pools in the eastern part of the middle valley, and also in the ricefields of guéd ...19852865881
[oestriasis in small ruminants in senegal. preliminary note].observations made in dakar abattoirs from march to december 1987 revealed that 46.39 per cent sheep and 57.89 per cent goats carried oestrus ovis larvae. a clear relationship between cause and effect exists between nasal discharge and the presence of mature larvae. because of their spine covering, they are irritating enough to provoke nasal mucosa inflammation with possible microbic complications. it is thus necessary to take into account the frequency and the pathogenicity of oestrus ovis infec ...19892485549
