A major outbreak of West Nile virus (WNV) infections took place in 2010 in Greece. Apart from the neuroinvasive cases, many additional cases without involvement of the nervous system were observed, characterized by high fever, myalgia, rash, leukopenia, and long-lasting recovery. West Nile non-neuroinvasive disease is a distinct clinical syndrome, and is not always mild.
