Abstract

Over the last two decades, and from the moment that serological detection was possible, human hantavirus infections have been documented in most European countries. This paper summarises the available data on hantavirus cases in Belgium. These data enable the demonstration of the existence of a 3-year epidemic cycle in Belgium, which is apparently linked to rodent population dynamics.
