Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome--Vermont, 2000

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome--Vermont, 2000

Mmwr. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 50(28): 603-605

In 1993, an outbreak of an unexplained pulmonary illness occurred in the southwestern United States. This outbreak led to the first description of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), a rodentborne hantaviral infection. Hantaviruses have been found in rodents in rural areas throughout the United States, but most infection has occurred in the southwest. This report describes the first HPS case in Vermont and underscores the importance of preventing exposure to peridomestic rodents and recognizing the signs and symptoms of HPS.
