https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26923953

https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/20/11/14-0888_article

During 2013, severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome was diagnosed in 35 persons in South Korea.

Environmental temperature probably affected the monthly and regional distribution of case-patients within the country.

Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the isolates from Korea were closely related to isolates from China and Japan.

The syndrome is caused by the SFTS virus (SFTSV) (genus Phlebovirus, family Bunyaviridae).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunyaviridae

The Bunyaviridae are divided into arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) and rodent-borne viruses (roboviruses).

Bunyaviruses cause several diseases of human and domestic animals, including fever, hemorrhagic fever, renal failure, encephalitis, meningitis, blindness, and, in domestic animals, congenital defects.

Most illnesses are self-limited fevers that last 1 to 4 days and are accompanied by headache, muscle aches, nausea, conjunctival injection, and generalized weakness.


A few are more serious illnesses:

La Crosse encephalitis is characterized by fever, convulsions, drowsiness, and focal neurologic signs;

Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever is characterized by headache, pain in limbs, and, in severe cases, bleeding from multiple orifices;

hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (Korean hemorrhagic fever, nephropathia epidemica) is characterized by fever, hemorrhage, and acute renal failure;

and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is characterized by fever and acute respiratory distress.


Rift Valley fever may mimic the febrile, encephalitic, or hemorrhagic illness of other bunyavirus infections, and the patient may also go blind as a result of retinal vasculitis.


These illnesses are significant, currently uncontrolled human diseases.


La Crosse virus causes most of the arbovirus encephalitis in North America.

Also, more than 100,000 cases of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome occur annually in Asia and Europe.

Rift Valley fever has explosive potential, as shown in Egypt in 1977, when an estimated 200,000 cases, with 598 deaths, were recorded.

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome is uncommon, but is associated with a 50% case fatality rate.
