Fièvre hémorragique à syndrome rénal associée à l’hantavirus Séoul en France : une observation

Abstract : Introduction. – Rodents are hantavirus hosts. In Europe, hantaviruses are responsible for human infectionsresulting in hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. Thousands of Puumala virus infections are reportedannually in Europe, whereas human Seoul virus infections are rarely detected.Case report. – We report the case of a 38-year-old patient who presented initially with flu-like symptoms and transitory blurred vision. He developed thrombocytopenia, acute renal failure, and elevatedaminotransferases levels during the disease course, but the outcome was favorable with a full recovery. Afterwards, the hantavirus serology results were indicative of Seoul virus infection.Conclusion. – This report serves to remind physicians to consider diagnosing hantavirus infection whenobserving the association of fever, acute renal failure and thrombocytopenia. Transitory blurred vision isa specific element to indicate this diagnosis.
