Laboratory infections with Ganjam virus

Laboratory infections with Ganjam virus

Indian Journal of Medical Research 74: 319-324

From July 26-Aug. 24, 1977, 4 members of the staff of the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, India, reported sick with a mild febrile illness which lasted 3-5 days. Earlier in Jan. 1977, another member of the NIV staff had suffered from a similar mild illness. Ganjam virus was isolated from the acute-phase serum samples of all 5 patients. Two of the 5 individuals were working with Ganjam virus shortly before onset of illness. Although none of the other 3 patients had a history of handling Ganjam virus for at least 1 mo. prior to their illness, the evidence strongly suggested a common source of infection in the laboratory. These findings demonstrate the infectious potential of Ganjam virus to laboratory workers.
