Abstract

In the spring of 2015, we experienced a cluster of four sporadic Yersiniosis of children in Nagano prefecture, rural area of Japan. Two patients had developed appendicitis-like episodes, one had acute gastroenteritis, and the other one had bacteremia associated with liver abscess. Causative agent of these infections was Yersinia enterocolitica serogroup O:8. None of the patients had underlying illness, and all had recovered completely. The patients had no relationship between each other, neither socially nor geographically. These four consecutive cases suggest that Y. enterocolitica O:8 had spread substantially in the middle part of Japan, and this virulent strain might be more common than previously reported in our country.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 November 2017.
All research outputs
#3,886,307
of 15,465,950 outputs
Outputs from Japanese Journal of Infectious Diseases
#27
of 482 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#93,100
of 322,136 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Japanese Journal of Infectious Diseases
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,465,950 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 482 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.8. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 322,136 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
