Abstract

In 1998 and 1999, we performed a serosurvey and active surveillance for La Crosse encephalitis at a children's hospital in eastern Tennessee. Fifteen cases of La Crosse encephalitis were confirmed. Only 5 (0.5%) of 1000 serum samples being tested at the state laboratory for other diseases had evidence of antibodies to La Crosse virus. These findings suggest that La Crosse virus is newly endemic to eastern Tennessee.
