1D62.1/B33.4 Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome



Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is a rare and potentially fatal disease caused by infection with hantaviruses, a type of virus that can be carried by rodents.


HPS is typically diagnosed through a combination of clinical symptoms, medical history, and laboratory tests. Symptoms of HPS may include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and shortness of breath. Laboratory tests can confirm the diagnosis by detecting hantavirus antibodies in the blood.

Differential diagnosis

Conditions that can cause similar symptoms to HPS include other viral infections, pneumonia, and asthma.


There is no specific treatment for HPS, but supportive care such as oxygen therapy and intravenous fluids can be helpful in managing symptoms.


The prognosis for HPS is generally good if the patient is treated early and effectively. Without treatment, the mortality rate can be as high as 38%.
