associated illnesses, collectively known as haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). The recent appearance of HPS, the severe nature of its clinical symptoms, its high human mortality and scant knowledge of the epidemiology and clinical aspects of the disease was of major concern to Member States of the : D. Mabey. Clinical features of Ebola viral haemorrhagic fever include inflammatory symptoms such as fever, myalgia, arthralgia, malaise and weakness. Haemorrhagic signs are petechiae, bleeding in internal organs and from bodily orifices like the mouth, eyes, or ears. Surveillance of acute haemorrhagic fever syndrome is aimed at early detection of cases in order to avoid epidemics and the possible international spread of the disease. RECOMMENDED CASE DEFINITION.

[T Trencséni; B Keleti]. Hemorrhagic fever with renal failure syndrome (HFRS) occurs mainly in Europe and Asia and is characterized by fever and renal failure associated with hemorrhagic manifestations. Hemorrhagic fever with renal failure syndrome is caused by an airborne contact with secretions from rodent hosts infected with the group of viruses belonging to the g.
The clinical features in hemorrhagic fever with renal failure syndrome (HFRS) consist of a triad of fever, hemorrhage, and renal insufficiency. Other common symptoms during the initial phase of the illness include headache, myalgia, abdominal and back pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Far Eastern hemorrhagic fever, endemic in Manchuria and China since antiquity, is considered by the authors to be identical with a hemorrhagic fever reported in the European Republics of the Soviet. Twenty-three cases of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome were serologically diagnosed in rural populations of Greece between and The clinical picture of the disease was severe, (3 deaths recorded among 23 cases) and more closely resembled Cited by: Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is a group of clinically similar illnesses caused by hantaviruses from the family Bunyaviridae.

Introduction. Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) has been a major epidemic mainly in Asia and Europe.

The viruses causing HFRS all belong to theHantavirus genus in theBunyaviridae family. At least three of the different hantaviruses are associated with human disease: Hantaan, Seoul, and Puumala by: In Asia and Europe (the Old World), the hantaviruses usually cause haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
This article summarizes the current understanding of hantavirus epidemiology, as well as the clinical manifestations, pathogenesis, renal Cited by: Laboratory diagnosis of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), an infectious disease caused by rodent-borne hantaviruses in Asia and Europe, depends primarily on serological methods.
Since the advent of such serodiagnostic tests, few reports are available about the clinical and molecular epidemiological features of by: Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is one of the most common infectious diseases globally.
With the most reported cases in the world, Cited by: 7. Hantaviruses are carried by numerous rodent species throughout the world. Ina previously unknown group of hantaviruses emerged in the United States as the cause of an acute respiratory disease now termed hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS).
Before then, hantaviruses were known as the etiologic agents of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, a disease that occurs almost entirely in. Hantavirus hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is a group of clinically similar illnesses caused by species of hantaviruses from the family Hantaviridae, in the order is also known as Korean hemorrhagic fever and epidemic hemorrhagic fever.
The species that cause HFRS include Hantaan orthohantavirus, Dobrava-Belgrade orthohantavirus, Saaremaa virus, Seoul. Argentine hemorrhagic fever (AHF) or O'Higgins disease, also known in Argentina as mal de los rastrojos (stubble disease) is a hemorrhagic fever and zoonotic infectious disease occurring in Argentina.

Renal epidemiology has moved from a focus on patients treated with renal replacement therapy using data from renal registries, to a much broader view of acute and chronic kidney disease. A review of essential epidemiological concepts and principles is followed by discussion of the epidemiology of different types of kidney disease: acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, and end-stage Author: Aminu Bello.

The case definition of acute, unexplained respiratory distress syndrome consisted of either of the following findings in any patient presenting after January 1, unexplained adult respiratory distress syndrome or radiographic evidence of acute, bilateral, interstitial pulmonary infiltrates with hypoxemia (arterial oxygen saturation, less than 90 percent while the patient is breathing room.
James. LeDuc, James E. Childs, Greg E. Glass, and A. Watson *. Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is a disease which has not gained widespread recognition among clinicians in the United States, but which is, in fact, of considerable significance in many parts of the world.
Editorial Note: Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome begins abruptly with fever, chills, weakness, and dizziness. Headache, myalgia, and lumbar pain are usually prominent. The severe form of the disease, occurring primarily in Asia, may result in thrombocytopenia with petechiae and hemorrhage, while the milder form exhibits little or no.
