Appendix VIII
Diseases Transmitted by Animals (Zoonoses)
Important zoonoses that may be encountered in North America are listed in this
Appendix and reviewed in the Red Book (see disease-specific chapters in Section 3 for fur-
ther information). Morbidity resulting from selected zoonotic diseases in the United States
is reported annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (see “Summary of
Notifiable Diseases” at www.cdc.gov/mmwr/mmwr_nd/). Information also can be
obtained via the Web site of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious
Diseases (www.cdc.gov/ncezid/about-ncezid.html) or through the main Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention Web site (www.cdc.gov).
