Abstract The third known outbreak of Marburg-virus disease occurred in Kenya in 1980. The index patient acquired infection in western Kenya, and a doctor in close contact with the patient terminally during a massive haematemesis developed infection in Nairobi. There was no further evidence of nosocomial transmission. Surveillance in western Kenya provided no evidence of Marburg-virus disease but suggested the presence of Ebola haemorrhagic fever. 
Ebola and marburg hemorrhagic fever.
TLDR
Clinicians in the United States should be aware of the symptoms of these viral infections in humans and know the appropriate procedures for contacting local, state, and national reference laboratories in the event of a suspected case of filoviral hemorrhagic fever. Expand
Forty-Five Years of Marburg Virus Research
TLDR
This article provides a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge about Marburg virus disease ranging from ecology to pathogenesis and molecular biology. Expand
Emerging Infectious Disease (2): Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever
TLDR
Physicians need to be aware of the potential danger of Marburg hemorrhagic fever, be able to identify the disease, and know how to manage and prevent its transmission. Expand

TLDR
Clinical suspicion for the disease must be heightened for travelers or contacts presenting with compatible clinical syndromes, and strict infection control measures must be promptly implemented to minimize the risk of secondary transmission within healthcare settings or in the community. Expand
Short communication: A cluster of Marburg virus disease involving an infant *
TLDR
The findings show that mild cases of Marburg haemorrhagic fever have to be expected during an outbreak and point out the difficulty to base patient management decisions on clinical case definitions alone. Expand
Marburg Virus Infection in Egyptian Rousette Bats, South Africa, 2013–20141
TLDR
Findings indicate endemic MARV circulation in bats in South Africa and should inform policies on MARV disease risk reduction. Expand
The natural history of Ebola virus in Africa.
TLDR
An overview of the many published investigations of how Ebola virus circulates in its natural environment, focusing on the viral reservoir, susceptible animal species, environmental conditions favoring inter-species transmission, and how the infection is transmitted to humans is presented. Expand
Marburg Virus Disease: A Review Literature
TLDR
Marburg virus global data including epidemiology, reservoir host, Clinique, diagnostic, transmission and prevention were reviewed and Roussettus aegyptiacus is considered as the natural reservoir of this virus. Expand

    TLDR
    It is believed that during this outbreak the first Marburg virus infection occurred by vector-borne transmission from an arthropod yet to be identified, and that patients 2 and 3 acquired the disease by exposure to the oropharyngeal secretions of patients 1 and 2, respectively. Expand

    TLDR
    Investigation of epidemiologic investigations of the Ebola hemorrhagic fever outbreak in Zaire in 1976 found that community members associated the mission hospital with the epidemic and the hospital was closed at the end of September, essentially stopped injection-transmitted disease and the epidemic terminated shortly thereafter.

    TLDR
    Viral antigens were detected in brain tissue that had been taken from patients with herpes simplex encephalitis and stored in paraffin for up to 15 years and cells containing antigen could be precisely identified without loss of histologic detail by restaining the same tissue sections with hematoxylin and eosin.
