West Nile virus (WNv) notes for clinicians

Description

After initial introduction and spread in 2002 and 2003, West Nile virus (WNv) is now endemic in parts of the province, especially in south eastern Alberta. Clinicians will need to consider the possibility of WNv infection in their symptomatic patients each summer and fall. This information sheet describes the clinical features of WNv infection and is intended to assist clinicians in determining when WNv infection should be considered in a differential diagnosis and when testing for WNv infection should be considered.
