Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is an endemic disease in Argentina, one of the most affected countries in the Americas. Andes virus (ANDV) is the main Orthohantavirus species causing HPS in Argentina. In this study, the geographical distribution, clinical presentation, and epidemiological features of HPS from all endemic regions of Argentina were analyzed. We focused on the clinical and epidemiological data from 533 HPS cases confirmed during the period 2009 to 2017 by the National… 
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome outbreaks associated with climate variability in Northwestern Argentina, 1997–2017
TLDR
It is demonstrated that climate variability plays a significant role in the transmission of hantavirus in northwestern Argentina and the model developed in this study provides a basis for the forecast of potential HPS outbreaks based on climatic parameters.
Orthohantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome in Santa Cruz and Tarija, Bolivia, 2018.
TLDR
These cases occurred in areas prone for ecoepidemiological conditions, including the rodents' presence, for viral transmission and the risk of spillover to humans due to social, environmental, and occupational factors.
Expanded distribution of orthohantavirus Pergamino genotype: First record in Entre Rios province, Argentina.
TLDR
The aim of this work was to detect the orthohantavirus genotypes present in a rodent community that inhabits a zone where a fatal HPS case occurred within an endemic locality of Central Argentina.
Immune response during hantavirus diseases: implications for immunotherapies and vaccine design
TLDR
Recent findings relative to the immune responses elicited to hantaviruses in subjects suffering HFRS or HCPS are discussed, highlighting the similarities and differences between these two clinical diseases.
Emerging hantaviruses in Central Argentina: First case of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome caused by Alto Paraguay virus, and a novel orthohantavirus in Scapteromys aquaticus rodent
TLDR
The first HPS case infected with Alto Paraguay virus reported in Argentina is presented, implicate an epidemiological warning regarding these new orthohantaviruses circulating in Central Argentina as well as new rodent species that must be considered as hosts from now on.
Emerging Hantaviruses in Central Argentina: first case of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome caused by Alto Paraguay Virus and a novel orthohantavirus in Scapteromys aquaticus rodent
TLDR
The first HPS case infected with Alto Paraguay virus reported in Argentina is presented, implicate an epidemiological warning regarding these new orthohantaviruses circulating in Central Argentina as well as new rodent species that must be considered as hosts from now on.
Orthohantavirus infection in two rodent species that inhabit wetlands in the central-east region of Argentina
TLDR
The relative risk of HPS could be high on wetlands of Paraná River Delta in the central-east region of Argentina where several favourable factors for the transmission of orthohantavirus are combined, such as the presence of several host species, two of them numerically dominant, high percentages of infection and a high degree of occupational exposure of the human population due to rural activities.
Delayed viral clearance despite high number of activated T cells during the acute phase in Argentinean patients with hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.
TLDR
The high activated phenotypic profile of T cells seems to be unable to resolve infection during the acute and early convalescent phases of HPS, and it was not associated with the severity of the disease.
Progress on the Prevention and Treatment of Hantavirus Disease
TLDR
This review provides a summary of the status of vaccine and antiviral treatment efforts including those tested in animal models or human clinical trials.
Frecuencia de anticuerpos contra Hantavirus en agricultores de arroz de una región tropical en el noreste del Perú
Introduction. There is little evidence of hantavirus exposition in Peru. Cases and seroprevalence studies in febrile and asymptomatic persons are from Loreto region; however, there are occupational

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in a highly endemic area of Brazil
TLDR
The findings help elucidate the epidemiology of HPS in Brazil, where mast seeding of bamboo can trigger rodent population eruptions and subsequent human HPS outbreaks and the need for molecular confirmation of the hantavirus genotype of human cases is emphasized.
[Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Buenos Aires, 2009-2014].
TLDR
Examination of epidemiological data and results of viral genome comparison strongly suggest person-to-person transmission in the three clusters of two cases described in this study.
[Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Buenos Aires Province].
TLDR
Seasonal and geographical distribution of HPS cases in Buenos Aires province, the association with diverse viral lineages and the serological characteristics of hantavirus infection in the period from 1997 up to the first semester of the year 2000 are presented.
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, United States, 1993–2009
TLDR
Increased hematocrits, leukocyte counts, and creatinine levels were more common in HPS case-patients who died, and cases continue to occur.
Genetic Diversity, Distribution, and Serological Features of Hantavirus Infection in Five Countries in South America
TLDR
The results of phylogenetic analysis showed that HPS cases from the five countries were infected with viruses related to AND or Laguna Negra (LN) virus, suggesting that there is probably an Oligoryzomys-borne viral variant circulating in Paraguay.
Viral load of patients with hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Argentina
TLDR
Viral load was significantly higher in patients infected with Andes virus South lineage, and was markedly low in persons infected with Laguna Negra virus, suggesting that the infecting viral genotype isassociated with disease severity, and that high viral load is associated with a low specific IgG response.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in Tucumán province associated to an unexpected viral genotype.
TLDR
The viral genotype involved in the first case of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome reported in Tucumán, a Northwestern province of Argentina, showed higher nucleotide identity with the Andes-BsAs genotype most prevalent in Buenos Aires province than with any of the commonly found genotypes in the Northwest Region.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome outbreak in Argentina: molecular evidence for person-to-person transmission of Andes virus.
TLDR
The results with Andes virus show the first direct genetic evidence of person-to-person transmission of a hantavirus.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in northwestern Argentina: circulation of Laguna Negra virus associated with Calomys callosus.
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to characterize the hantaviruses circulating in northwestern Argentina and identified Laguna Negra (LN) virus, associated with C. laucha in Paraguay, was identified for the first time in Argentina.
Prospective evaluation of household contacts of persons with hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome in chile.
TLDR
In recent household contacts of persons with HCPS in Chile, the risk of HCPS was greatest among sex partners and among the household contacts who developed HCPS, viremia preceded the onset of symptoms and the appearance of anti-hantavirus antibodies by up to 2 weeks.
