Abstract

Introduction: Pertussis has been a preventable disease in Catalonia since 1965, but the annual number of cases remains high. The aim of this study was to analyze the epidemiology of pertussis in Catalonia and its implications for control purposes. Methods: An epidemiological study was carried out in Catalonia between 2004 and 2008. Pertussis cases reported to the Department of Health were collected and disease reports were filled out with the case information. Incidence rates, rate ratios (RR) and their 95% confidence intervals (CI) were calculated. Results: 963 cases were reported: 555 (57.6%) were confirmed and 408 (42.4%) were suspected cases. The reported incidence rate was 2.01×10-5 person years in 2004 and 4.34 in 2008. The biggest increase in cases between 2004 and 2008 was observed in the ≥35 years age group (RR: 6.98; 95%CI: 2.11-36.36). 303 (31.5%) patients were hospitalized, of whom 93.7% were aged
