Acute West Nile virus neuroinvasive infections: cross-reactivity with dengue virus and tick-borne encephalitis virus

Cross-reactions in serology are common among flaviviruses. During the outbreak of West Nile virus (WNV) infections in Greece in 2010, WNV IgM-positive serum and cerebrospinal fluid samples were tested for the presence of IgM and IgG antibodies against Dengue virus (DENV) and tick-borne encephalitis virus. Higher cross-reactivity was observed in IgM antibodies between WNV and DENV; however, the index of the WNV antibodies was in all cases higher than that of the DENV antibodies. There is a need for caution when evaluating serologic results of flaviviral infections, while efforts have to be focused on the development of diagnostic assays with increased specificity.
