Synonyms: Haantan, Puumala, Dobrava, Seoul renal hemorrhagic fever; 2-42 day incubation; major nephropathy, moderate hemorrhagic, minor encephalitis, rare hepatitis;---------------------- HEMORRHAGIC FEVER WITH RENAL SYNDROME (HFRS) This syndrome is caused by four murine and arvicoline rodent-borne Old World hantaviruses; Men, particularly agricultural and forestry workers, are at greatest risk for infection in sylvatic locations; There is an unexplained paucity of cases among children, and it is possible that even symptomatic disease may be milder in children; The most severe form of HFRS is caused by Hantaan virus and is classically associated with five consecutive phases with characteristic physiological derangement: febrile, hypotensive, oliguric, diuretic, and convalescence; Hemorrhage is generally noted during the oliguric phase; However, there is considerable variation in both the incidence of various manifestations and the severity of the individual phases that may overlap---------------------[Rudolph"s Pediatrics 2002]---------------
