A nationwide epidemic of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) occurred in Yugoslavia in 1989.
Sera from 609 hospitalized patients, from all six Republics (Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro Serbia, Slovenia) and two Provinces (Kosovo and Vojvodina), who had signs and symptoms suggestive of HFRS, and sera and lung tissues from 544 small mammals belonging to 13 species were studied for evidence of hantavirus infection.
Of the 226 patients with serologically confirmed HFRS, 182 resided in Bosnia and Hercegovina or in Serbia.
