To the editor: Autochthonous cases of Japanese encephalitis (JE) have never been reported in Europe, where there is virtually no circulation of the virus [1]. However, in the issue of Eurosurveillance published on 12 July 2012, Ravanini et al. [2] reported the detection of an RNA sequence of the Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) NS5 gene in one pool of Culex pipiens mosquitoes collected in north-eastern Italy during the summer of 2010. Unfortunately, the sequence was relatively short (167 bp… CONTINUE READING
