URL of this page: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/hantavirusinfections.html Also called: HPS Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a rare but deadly viral infection. It is spread by mice and rats. They shed the virus in their urine, droppings and saliva. Tiny droplets with the virus can enter the air. People can get the disease if they breathe infected air or come into contact with rodents or their urine or droppings. You cannot catch it from people. Early symptoms of HPS include
  • Fatigue Fever Muscle aches, especially in the thighs, hips and back Headaches Chills Dizziness Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain
Later symptoms include coughing and shortness of breath. Controlling rodents in and around your house is the best way to protect yourself from infection. If you have been around rodents and have symptoms of fever, deep muscle aches, and severe shortness of breath, see your doctor immediately.

Hantavirus Classification and external resources ICD B ICD MeSH Hantaviruses belong to the Bunyaviridae family of viruses . The Bunyaviridae family is divided into 5 genera: Orthobunyavirus Nairovirus Phlebovirus Tospovirus , and Hantavirus . Like all members of this family, hantaviruses have genomes comprising three negative-sense , single-stranded RNA segments, and so are classified as negative sense RNA viruses . Viruses in the genus Hantavirus are unique in that they are transmitted by aerosolized rodent excretia or rodent bites, whereas all other genera in the Bunyaviridae family are arthropod -borne viruses. The name hantavirus is derived from the Hantan River , where the Hantaan virus (the etiologic agent of Korean hemorrhagic fever ) was first isolated by Dr.

HANTAVIRUS PULMONARY SYNDROME In 1993, a previously unknown infectious disease agent was discovered by a task force of scientists in New Mexico. This disease agent occurs naturally throughout most of North and South America; it is airborne, and in the absence of prompt medical attention, its infections are usually fatal. This disease is called Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). It can affect anyone, but given some fundamental knowledge, it can also be very easy to prevent.

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
Deer Mouse ( Peromyscus maniculatus In May 1993, an outbreak of an unexplained pulmonary illness occurred in the southwestern United States, in an area shared by Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah known as "The Four Corners." A number of previously healthy young adults suddenly developed acute respiratory symptoms; about half died. Researchers soon suspected that they were dealing with a form of hantavirus, which is transmitted by rodents. Investigating the possible rodent connection, researchers trapped rodents in the affected area until the virus and its principal carrier the deer mouse were positively identified. By November 1993, the specific virus that caused the Four Corners outbreak was isolated. The new virus was called Sin Nombre virus and the new disease caused by the virus was named hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, or HPS. Hantavirus is present in the saliva, urine, and feces of infected mice. People are infected by breathing in the virus during direct contact with rodents or from disturbing dust and feces from mice nests or surfaces contaminated with mice droppings or urine.

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS)
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a deadly disease from rodents. Humans can contract the disease when they come into contact with infected rodents or their urine and droppings. HPS was first recognized in 1993 and has since been identified throughout the United States. Although rare, HPS is potentially deadly. Rodent control in and around the home remains the primary strategy for preventing hantavirus infection.

        What is Hantavirus? Hantavirus is a virus that is found in the urine, saliva, or droppings of infected deer mice and some other wild rodents (cotton rats, rice rats in the southeastern Unites States and the white-footed mouse). It causes a rare but serious lung disease called Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). The virus does not remain active for long once outside of its host less than 1 week outdoors and a few hours when exposed to direct sunlight.
        How common is Hantavirus? The virus was first reported in Canada in 1994 with 3 cases in British Columbia. Since then, about 50 cases have been reported, mostly in western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia).
        How can Hantavirus enter my body? People can contract the Hantavirus infection through inhalation of respirable droplets of saliva or urine, or through the dust of feces from infected wild rodents, especially the deer mouse. Transmission can also occur when contaminated material gets into broken skin, or possibly, ingested in contaminated food or water. Person-to-person transmission in North America has not been reported. A few situations of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in South America suggests person-to-person transmission is possible. However, the viruses isolated in South America are genetically distinct from those described in North America.

RESERVOIR The deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus) is the primary reservoir of the hantavirus that causes hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) in the United States. TRANSMISSION Infected rodents shed the virus through urine, droppings, and saliva. HPS is transmitted to humans through a process called aerosolization . Aerosolization occurs when dried materials contaminated by rodent excreta or saliva are disturbed. Humans become infected by breathing in these infectious aerosols. HPS in the United States cannot be transmitted from one person to another.

    What is hantavirus?
    Hantaviruses are a group of viruses that are carried by rodents. One of them, Sin Nombre virus, is found in deer mice in North America. Sin Nombre virus is the cause of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) in people. How are people exposed? Deer mice excrete the virus in their urine, saliva, and droppings. A person may be exposed to hantavirus by breathing contaminated dust after disturbing or cleaning rodent droppings or nests, or by living or working in rodent-infested settings. In North America, there is no evidence that the disease spreads from one person to another. What are the symptoms of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome? Symptoms begin one to six weeks after inhaling the virus and typically start with 3-5 days of "flu-like" illness including fever, sore muscles, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. As the disease gets worse, it causes shortness of breath due to fluid filled lungs. Hospital care is usually required. It is serious disease and about one out of three people diagnosed with HPS have died. Where is hantavirus found and how common is it?

    Hantavirus
    Hantavirus is a relatively new term referring to a life threatening disease which first surfaced on Navajo reservations in New Mexico and has resulted in dozens of fatalities to date. This virally caused infection may have been around for years and would have gone unnoticed until the recent unexplained deaths of six people in 1993 resulted in a careful investigation of the virus The disease can strike suddenly and can become fatal within a short period of time. Hantavirus can be mistaken for an unexplained respiratory infection and is also referred to as hantaviral pulmonary syndrome. It is considered one of several recently discovered virally caused respiratory diseases that can in its initial stages mimic the flu , but progresses rapidly to a life threatening level. Particular attention to the disease has been given in the southwest's four comer area where New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado meet. A 971-mile Navajo reservation located in New Mexico and Arizona was recently investigated by epidemiologists from the Federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention to try to find the cause of this mysterious disease. Seventy-three cases of hantavirus have been reported in 18 states, with 42 fatalities. Currently, there is no cure for the disease. As a result, prevention has been stressed. The hantavirus family name originates from the Hantaan River in Korea, where the first strain of the virus was discovered several years ago.

    Hantavirus
    The hantavirus is carried in the urine, saliva, or droppings of infected rodents primarily deer mice although other species of mice have been found to be infected. People are infected by breathing in the virus during direct contact with rodents or from disturbing dust and feces from mice nests or surfaces contaminated with mice droppings or urine. Host-deer mice are very common in rural and semi-rural areas throughout the U.S., but are rarely found in developed urban or suburban areas. In New Mexico, hantavirus has been found primarily in the northern areas; especially in the Four Corners area. Only one case has been found in Bernalillo County and that occurred in 1995 in the East Mountain area. Mice are not affected by the virus. Household pets and livestock do not appear to become ill and do not transmit the virus. The virus is not transmitted by insects. There have been no recorded cases of human-to-human transmission in North America. The deer mouse is 4-9 inches long from head to tail and the color varies from pale gray to reddish-brown with a sharply bi-colored tail. The length of the tail is usually two-thirds of its body length and unlike other field mice, it does not have a tuft of hairs protruding from the tip of the tail (middle mouse in photo). Other mice such as the pinon mouse (top mouse in photo) and the common house mouse (bottom mouse in photo) are sometimes mistaken for the deer mouse.
