ABSTRACT

Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome is presented with so many different clinical symptoms. It can present mild form of the disease or the severe symptoms. We reported two cases with HFRS, at pregnant women, ended with pregnancy interruption. Both of them had nearly the same age, both 16 weeks pregnant. They presented with fever, malaise, muscle pain and headache. They were febrile when presented at the hospital, hypotensive, hyperemia on the face. They complained about oligo-anuria too. One of them continued to be hypotension, despite the supportive therapy she had an abortion after 8 hours. The other patient had the abortion on the 4th day of hospitalization. The diagnose was set based on the clinical, epidemiological findings and the serological positive confirmation for IgM Hantavirus by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunofluorescence assay IFA.

The abortion is a rare complication of HFRS in pregnancy. The symptoms are not specific. Early diagnosis and appropriate management are necessary to improve the maternal and fetal outcome. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2017; 7(4):198-201
