Reservoir-driven heterogeneous distribution of recorded human Puumala virus cases in South-West Germany.
Of the total 8,793 samples we tested for California serogroup virus IgM, 4,214 serum samples and 832 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples had been initially sent for screening of meningoencephalitis agents; 3,574 serum samples had been initially sent for Puumala virus testing; and 173 serum samples had been sent for INKV testing.
All serum samples exhibited substantially higher neutralizing titers toward DOBV than toward Puumala virus, Hantaan virus, and Seoul virus.

Five hantaviruses circulate among rodents in Europe, but most human HFRS cases are caused by Puumala virus (PUUV) (1,2).
Puumala virus RNA has been detected by RT-PCR but not by cell culture in saliva from patients who had hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (29).
