Abstract

In Europe infection with Puumala or Dobrava viruses causes hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). In the course of HFRS, mild neurological symptoms such as headache, vertigo, and nausea are common. However, the data about the occurrence of severe, potentially life-threatening neurological manifestations are rather scarce. Here, we present a case of HFRS with serologically proven Dobrava virus infection complicated by epileptic seizures and hemiparesis due to focal encephalitis.
