Of the 66 patients treated at CSNG, 4 (6.1%, 95% confidence interval [CI] 2.0-15.6) had a new Buruli lesion. One patient (4.0%) of 25 came from Atlantique and 3 (7.3%) of 41 from Zou (Table 3).
In a study designed to assess the effectiveness of excising preulcerative Buruli lesions in field situations in Ghana, Amofah et al.
The age-specific odds ratio for male likelihood of having an active Buruli lesion
is 0.58 (CI 0.5-0.68; p=0) while that for females is 0.73 (CI 0.62-0.68; p=0.0002).
