Sažetak
This is the second subsequent year of West Nile neuroinvasive Disease (WNND) outbreak in Croatia. Between July and October 2013, 22 patients presented with symptoms of WNND: all with meningitis and 18 additionally with encephalitis. In contrast to 2012, where six autochthonous infections were confirmed in eastern Croatia, the majority of this year’s cases occurred in and around the city of Zagreb, where no West Nile Virus infections have been observed before. Viral RNA was recovered from two patients and phylogenetic analyses revealed West Nile Virus lineage 2. This represents the first molecular characterization and phylogenetic analysis of the circulating West Nile Virus strain in Croatia.
