Tick-borne encephalitis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEv) is the most frequently diagnosed vector-borne encephalitis. Consisting of a group of closely related flaviviruses, this entity is little known in the United States, where its only representative is Powassan virus-an agent identified as responsible for only a few dozen cases of human disease-all of which occurred in Eastern Canada and the Northeast United States. In fact, a recent U.S. review of flavivirus encephalitis explicitly excludes all discussion of TBE, despite the fact that TBEv causes many more cases of encephalitis annually than does West Nile, the major focus of that paper (1).
