First Death of Eastern Equine Encephalitis Patient in USA
As State health officials say a 20-year-old Newton woman died on Friday [9 Sep 2005] of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in New Hampshire. This marks the 5th confirmed case of EEE in the state this year but the 1st time someone has died.

Health officials said the woman was taken to a Boston hospital on Sat 3 Sep 2005 with symptoms of the disease. An initial test was inconclusive,
according to Dr. Jose Montero, the state epidemiologist. A subsequent test confirmed yesterday [10 Sep 2005] that she had the disease, he said.

Montero says testing of mosquitoes in the Kingston-Newton-Plaistow area have made it clear the [virus] has a foothold there. `That is clearly an area where there`s a lot of endemic activity, and people clearly have to be
careful,` he said. 4 other confirmed cases of the disease in New Hampshire involved people in Londonderry, Goffstown, Manchester, and Concord.

All 4 were treated at area hospitals and have since been released.

State health officials continue to advise people to wear bug repellant along with long sleeves and long pants and to empty any standing water on
their property where mosquitoes could breed.

Statistically, about 1/3rd of patients who contract the illness die from it. 2 of 3 patients with the illness in Massachusetts have died this year [see: Eastern equine encephalitis, human - USA (MA) 20050908.2663].

Presumed Neuroglycopenia following Severe Hypoglycemia in Horsesmembers
Neuroglycopenia refers to a shortage of glucose in the brain resulting in neuronal dysfunction and death if left untreated. Presumed neuroglycopenia has not been described in horses. Thus, the objective of this retrospective study was to report neurological signs in horses with presumed neuroglycopenia as the result of severe hypoglycemia.
