Eghteen of the cases occurred among itinerant groups of the population mainly in the western and central parts of the country. All 18 cases occurred during the first four months of the year. The age &str~butions howed seven cases in infants below one year of age, seven in children between one and two years of age and four cases in children aged between seven and 16 years. In 11 of the 18 cases the diagnosis was confirmed by the isolation of poliovlrus type 1, m six cases the clinical diagnosis was supported by elevated titres of anhbodies to poliovirus type 1 alone or to both types 1 and 3, and one case was diagnosed on clinlcal criteria only. The possible circulation of the virus among persons in contact with the cases was mvest~gatedo n two occasions. Poliovirus type 1 was isolated from four contacts of two infant cases aged seven and eight months.
