NEW SURVEILLANCE DATABASE “UNIDENTIFIED DERMATOSIS SYNDROME”
Abstract: There have been reports to state and local public health agencies from residents throughout Georgia of thread-like skin parasites in their skin, and a related set of symptoms. In response, the Unidentified Dermatosis Syndrome (UDS) Surveillance Database was developed and is maintained by the Chemical Hazards Program, Environmental Health Section, Georgia Division of Public Health. It is intended to build and maintain self-reported symptom surveillance capacity. Definition The Chemical Hazards Program defines “Unidentified Dermatosis Syndrome” as reports of tiny bugs that look like black specks, or thread-like parasites in the skin; or of "something" biting, stinging, or crawling in the skin, and an accompanying set of symptoms including itching, visible sores, and fatigue. Hypothesis The Chemical Hazards Program will examine whether: 1. parasites may be causing the symptoms, and 2. individuals may share hypersensitivity to toxins produced by certain fungi/molds present in soil causing specific neurotoxic effects. CURRENT ACTIVITIES: PHASE I Surveillance Database and Initial Survey Beginning March 1, 2006 we will administer a survey to collect data from individuals reporting specific symptoms of UDS. Chemical Hazards Program staff is contacting Georgia residents following referral from various state, district, and local public health agencies, health care providers, other professionals, and individuals for voluntary participation in the survey. Beginning September 1, 2006 Chemical Hazards Program staff will analyze the results of the survey and decide which health education activities, networking strategies, referral resources, environmental sampling, or medical interventions will best meet the needs of the survey participants. Reports generated will contain grouped information only, and will not contain any personal identifiers such as name or address. The results of the data analyses are expected to be available to the public in late fall 2006. The UDS surveillance database will remain in place and continue to gather information about cases in Georgia. Survey The UDS survey requests basic demographic information: age, gender, race/ethnicity and education level. Questions about their home environment and daily activities, including length of residency, soil conditions, outdoor hobbies, employment history, and allergy history are included. Respondents will be asked in detail about their symptoms, doctor visits, current medications, health status of other family members and pets, and attempted and/or successful treatments and symptom relief.
Page 2 Data Management and Entry CHP staff will collect, manage, enter, and analyze all data from completed surveys. Survey data will be entered into an Access database and cross checked for validity, reliability, and accuracy by random verification of entered data and other accepted methods. Data Analyses Access 2000 database software will be used for data analyses. Survey questions will be analyzed and compared using analytic techniques appropriate for community survey design. Univariate analyses will generate descriptive statistics to characterize data from the survey. Bivariate and multivariate analyses will assess whether trends and relationships exist among survey responses. ArcView 9.0 software will be used to map/illustrate any trends and relationships. If trends and relationships are found to exist and are determined to potentially be a result of parasites and/or exposure to specific fungi present in soil, medical intervention and/or soil sampling recommendations will provided to appropriate agencies. For more information, to refer individuals, or to be considered for participation in the survey, please contact: Jane M. Perry, Director Chemical Hazards Program Georgia Division of Public Health Atlanta, Georgia (404) 657-6534
