Related to hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome: hantavirus

hem·or·rhag·ic fe·ver with re·nal syn·drome

a form of disorder caused by the Hantaan virus.
An Eastern Asia infection caused by Hantavirus, a Bunyavirus isolated in the Hantaan River, acquired via aerosolized rodent feces and urine—Rattus rattus, Apodemus agrarius, Clethrionomys glariolus, Microtus spp; 100,000 cases/year in China, and may be increased
Prognosis Mortality rate is determined by the vector itself, Apodemus-associated infections—3–7% mortality is worse than nephropathia epidemica, which has a vole—Clethrionomys vector

(hem'ŏr-aj'ik fē'vĕr rē'năl sin'drōm)
A condition caused by a Hantavirus, which is transmitted to humans by contact with or inhalation of contaminated rodent body fluids.
