Abstract

Dobrava hantavirus (DOBV) infection was diagnosed in a previously healthy 46-y-old hunter suffering from severe haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). Specific IgM antibodies against DOBV were identified by an immunofluorescence assay, while viral nucleic acid was detected by the molecular method, confirming the diagnosis. Our results reveal an existing risk of DOBV transmission to humans in Hungary.
