Abstract

Infection with St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV) in humans usually is asymptomatic or inapparent. In occasional cases, severe encephalitis results with an overall case fatality rate approximating 10%. Less commonly, with enhanced surveillance in urban epidemics, cases of SLEV infection resulting in aseptic meningitis or a febrile headache are recognized. 21.
