Puumala virus infection causes epidemic nephropathia (NE), a certain type of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). Myopic shift is considered a pathognomonic sign of NE and HFRS but rates of ocular involvement vary. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether clinical and laboratory findings are associated with ophthalmic involvement in NE in Austria. We found that blurred vision and myopic shift are frequent in Puumala virus infections in Austria but are independent of disease severity. © 2012 The Authors.
