[3 cases of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome morbidity].Klin Med (Mosk). 2008; 86(4):70-1.KM
Viral origin of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is known since 40th years of last century. Also it is known that contamination of person is performed mainly by air pollution way. We observed a focus with 3 HFRS cases (with laboratory confirmation--antibodies to HFRS Hantavirus were found) in one family with one lethal outcome. Contamination of patients occurred by air pollution way during stocking vegetables contaminated with rodent's excrements. Lethal outcome was stipulated by incorrect diagnosis made by district doctor (nonmetering epidemiological anamnesis and HFRS territory endemicity and seasonal prevalence) which leaded to late hospitalization and absence of possibility to render all complex of treatment and reanimation in the hospital.
