1/1. Viral haemorrhagic fever in sweden: experiences from management of a case.

    The first recognized case in scandinavia with potential man to man transmission of viral haemorrhagic fever occurred in Linkoping, sweden, in January 1990. Following a visit to kenya a 21-year-old male student suffered a very severe illness including extremely prolonged high grade fever, rash, disseminated intravascular coagulation with thrombocytopenia and severe bleedings. This necessitated one month of intensive care support including respirator treatment. The patient was discharged after 2 1/2 months in good condition, with a partial femoral nerve paresis. About 100 medical personnel were exposed to aerosol or blood before a strict containment regimen was established. No secondary cases occurred.
