Management of viral haemorrhagic fevers in Switzerland

Published in Euro Surveillance. 2002, vol. 7, no. 3, p. 42-44
Abstract Over the past years, there have been very few imported cases of VHF in Switzerland: one confirmed and four suspected cases of Ebola fever in Basel in 1994, two suspected cases of Ebola and Lassa fevers in Lausanne in 2000, and in the same year, six suspected cases of Lassa fever in Geneva. Given the considerable diversity in the management of patients with suspected or confirmed VHF, national guidelines are needed, as well as the establishment of a national reference centre.
