Abstract

Viral hemorrhagic fevers are illnesses associated with a number of geographically restricted, mostly tropical areas. Over recent decades a number of new hemorrhagic fever viruses have emerged. Advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of these diseases have improved our initial supportive management and led to the recognition of several potentially useful antiviral agents. This review focuses on these hemorrhagic fever viruses and specifically addresses therapeutic aspects and recent progress that has been made in the treatment of these viral pathogens.
