Primary infection with West-Nile virus


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