Human Brucellosis Cases.—  The Alaska Division of Health announced that two cases of human brucellosis were reported to the division during the past year. In both cases raw caribou meat or bone marrow were believed the source of infection. One case was a 13-year-old Eskimo girl from Wainwright and the other an 18-year-old girl from Barrow. Investigations of the cases were carried out by the U. S. Public Health Service personnel. Since 1939 only 51 cases of human brucellosis have been reported in Alaska, 25 of which occurred in 1942 in a community in the interior and were attributed to consumption of improperly pasteurized milk.
