Abstract

Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) is an often-overlooked cause for viral meningitis but can have severe consequences in certain clinical situations. We present the first documented infection by LCMV in Israel. The epidemiology of LCMV is evolving with a potential for a worldwide endemicity due to the widespread presence of the natural host. Increased awareness and testing are required to identify this virus and screening of certain populations (e.g., organ donors) should be considered.
