Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a potentially fatal zoonosis caused by hantaviruses (family Bunyaviridae, genus Hantavirus) that are principally associated with members of the rodent family Cricetidae, more specifically, members of the subfamily Neotominae or Sigmodontinae (1,2).
Specific members of the rodent family Cricetidae (8) are the principal hosts of the Tacaribe serocomplex viruses for which natural host relationships have been well characterized.
Specific members of the rodent family Cricetidae (4) are the principal hosts of the Tacaribe complex viruses for which natural host relationships have been well characterized.
and other members of the family Cricetidae are natural hosts of these viruses (1-5,8,13,14).
Members of the rodent family Cricetidae are the principal hosts of the Tacaribe serocomplex viruses for which natural host relationships have been well characterized.
Most hantaviruses (family Bunyaviridae) are hosted by 1 or a few closely related rodent species, including rodents of the family Cricetidae, subfamily Sigmodontinae (1).
Specific members of the subfamilies Neotominae and Sigmodontinae in the rodent family Cricetidae (11) are the principal hosts (reservoirs) of the hantaviruses known to cause HPS in North America and the 3 North American arenaviruses.
