Primary infection with West-Nile virus

, : Primary infection with West-Nile virus. Annales de Dermatologie et de Venereologie 128(5): 656-658

The recent outbreak of an epidemic of West-Nile fever in New York revealed this virus' responsibility in some cases of fatal encephalitis. However the clinical manifestations of the infection may be mild as in the case reported herein. A 41-year-old woman without previous medical history presented to hospital in France with an acute febrile rash after a trip to Senegal. The course was spontaneously favourable after 5 days, with a biphasic fever at day 3.

Precursor membrane protein (prM) is found in the envelope of immature West Nile virus (WNV) particles. Anti-prM antibodies are found in flavivirus-infected animal sera, and they are known as relatively virus species specific antibodies. However, t...

Two different outcomes were observed. WN...
