Abstract

Some viruses are transmitted only in specific parts of the world and do not exist in Switzerland. However, the increase in intercontinental travels, the tendency of travelers to have activities in remote rural areas, the transportation (sometimes forbidden) of exotic animals, the climatic warming and the adaptation of viruses to new vectors produce an extension of viral diseases towards Northern countries. To improve the identification of these infections in travelers, but also in European autochthonous populations, it is necessary to know the clinical characteristics and the websites announcing the epidemics. Neurological or hemorrhagic signs should incite the clinician to suspect a viral hemorrhagic fever, diagnosis to be considered if the destination and chronology are compatible, strict isolation measures being necessary
