Abstract [sv]

The article presents clinical features of pertussis in older children and adults as well as in unvaccinated infants, with the aim to increase the awareness of the disease and to promote implementation of chemoprophylaxis in households with infants. The national routines for reporting according to the Communicable Diseases Act are outlined, contact-tracing around cases of pertussis being mandatory since July 2004.
