In Europe, HFRS is caused by 3 hantaviruses: Puumala virus (PUUV), carried by the bank vole (Myodes glareolus); Dobrava virus (DOBV), carried by the yellow-necked mouse (Apodemus flavicollis); and Saaremaa virus (SAAV), carried by the striped field mouse (A.
In Estonia, PUUV and SAAV were found in wild rodents.
No fatal cases have been reported on Saaremaa Island, where 23% of the population has antibodies against SAAV; this finding strongly suggests that SAAV causes a milder form of HFRS.
We found that 21 patients were infected by PUUV, 3 by SAAV, and 1 by DOBV (at least a 4-fold higher endpoint titer).
Oliguria (<400 mL/24 h) was noted for 55% of the PUUV patients and all SAAV patients; subsequent polyuria (>2,500 mL/24 h) was noted for 45% of the PUUV-infected patients and in 67% of the SAAV patients.
In summary, no remarkable differences in the clinical course of HFRS caused by PUUV and SAAV were found.
Because at least 2 hantaviruses, PUUV and SAAV, circulate in Estonia, our main aim was to describe the clinical courses of HFRS caused by different hantaviruses.
Hemorrhagic manifestations were found in 3 patients (2 PUUV and 1 SAAV), but no statistically significant differences were found between the groups.
