Sažetak
Hantaviruses cause haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), representing an important public health problem in Europe. Croatia is a well-known endemic region for hantaviruses. We describe an unusual outbreak of HFRS in Croatia, partially linked to the 2012 Snow Queen Trophy slalom races, which began in a new HFRS endemic region in Croatia, Mt. Medvednica, a popular place for hiking, skiing, picking mushrooms and berries, picnics, school excursions and hunting. The outbreak was characterized by unexpectedly early onset for Croatia (January) and prolonged incubation time (up to 47 days). The Mt. Medvednica environment could pose a serious public health risk with regard to hantavirus in the future because it is located in the immediate vicinity of the Croatian capital of Zagreb, which has around a million inhabitants, about one quarter of the Croatian population. In addition, each year in January, the Snow Queen Trophy men’s and women’s slalom races are organized on Mt. Medvednica as a part of the Ski World Cup, attracting numerous international skiers and visitors.
