Antiviral treatment of Argentine hemorrhagic fever.
The emergence of Argentine hemorrhagic fever in east-central Argentina during the 1950s, and its expansion to north-central Argentina, has been directly linked to development of agricultural activities (mainly corn growing) that sustain the virus's main reservoir, the corn mouse (Calomys musculinus).
Argentine hemorrhagic fever (AHF) due to Junin virus and other arenaviral diseases are among the exceptions (11-14).
