Abstract

A total of 44 laboratory workers were examined for serological evidence of infection by Pichinde virus. Complement-fixing antibodies were detected in the sera of 6 of 13 (46%) persons working with the virus but not among 31 persons not working with the virus. Serological evidence of infection was greatest among those workers exposed to concentrated virus. No distinct illness could be associated with the infection.
