ABSTRACT

The behaviour of bacterial meningitis with identified agent in the City of Havana in 1998. The implementation of Geographic Information System Mapinfo 4.1 made it possible to know the spatial distribution of the sick people. As a result, we found an area of circulation of Neisseria meningitidis located to the northeast center; an area of prevalence of Streptococcus pneumoniae to the north and northeast of the city and zones located to the center, east and south where Haemophilus influenzae prevailed. These areas were related to the main sources of environmental pollution in the province. The importance of the spatial analysis for expanding the knowledge for an epidemiological study was evidenced.


Key words: meningitis bacterial, epidemiology, environmental pollution, air pollution, meningitis pneumococcal, meningitis haemophilus, meningitis meningococcal Cuba.
