Figure 2

Number of cases, incidence rates (cases/100,000 children/year), and 95% confidence intervals of Mycobacterium avium disease in children grouped according to ecologic, geographic, and cultivation zones, Sweden, 1998–2003. Freshwater, coastal (incidence of saltwater and brackish water were similar within this group), inland, urban (Stockholm, Göteborg, and Malmö, the 3 largest cities in Sweden) areas and the different cultivation zones (1–8, zone 1 being the warmest) are depicted. When assigning zones to each case, we assumed that the children were infected in the area where they resided. UCL, upper confidence limit; LCL, lower confidence limit.
