Abstract

Barmah Forest virus, a recently-discovered arbovirus which belongs to the alphavirus genus of the family Togaviridae, has been shown to cause infections in humans in New South Wales. The present report documents three patients in whom Barmah Forest viral infection appears to have resulted in illness. Barmah Forest virus or a closely-related alphavirus may, as are several other alphaviruses, be pathogenic.
