A novel human protoparvovirus related to human bufavirus and preliminarily named cutavirus has been discovered.

Loiasis in US Traveler Returning from Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea, 2016 [PDF - 507 KB - 3 pages]
D. H. Priest and T. B. Nutman

The filarial parasite Loa loa overlaps geographically with Onchocera volvulus and Wuchereria bancrofti filariae in central Africa. Accurate information regarding this overlap is critical to elimination programs targeting O. volvulus and W. bancrofti. We describe a case of loiasis in a traveler returning from Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea, a location heretofore unknown for L. loa transmission.

Invasive Infections with Multidrug-Resistant Yeast Candida auris, Colombia [PDF - 303 KB - 3 pages]

Candida auris is an emerging multidrug-resistant fungus that causes a wide range of symptoms. We report finding 17 cases of C. auris infection that were originally misclassified but correctly identified 27.5 days later on average. Patients with a delayed diagnosis of C. auris had a 30-day mortality rate of 35.2%.

Chikungunya Fever in Traveler from Angola to Japan, 2016 [PDF - 385 KB - 3 pages]
S. Takaya et al.

Simultaneous circulation of multiple arboviruses presents diagnostic challenges. In May 2016, chikungunya fever was diagnosed in a traveler from Angola to Japan. Travel history, incubation period, and phylogenetic analysis indicated probable infection acquisition in Angola, where a yellow fever outbreak is ongoing. Thus, local transmission of chikungunya virus probably also occurs in Angola.

We report the characterization of a novel reassortant influenza A(H1N2) virus not previously reported in humans. Recovered from a a pig farm worker in southeast Brazil who had influenza-like illness, this virus is a triple reassortant containing gene segments from subtypes H1N2 (hemagglutinin), H3N2 (neuraminidase), and pandemic H1N1 (remaining genes).

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection causes acute liver disease, but severe infections are rare in immunocompetent patients.

Scrub Typhus Leading to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome, Assam, India [PDF - 405 KB - 3 pages]
S. A. Khan et al.

To determine the contribution of Orientia tsutsugamushi, the agent of scrub typhus, as a cause of acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) in Assam, India, we conducted a retrospective study of hospital patients with symptoms of AES during 2013–2015. Our findings suggest that O. tsutsugamushi infection leads to AES and the resulting illness and death.

Dolphin Morbillivirus Associated with a Mass Stranding of Sperm Whales, Italy [PDF - 893 KB - 3 pages]
S. Mazzariol et al.

In September 2014, seven sperm whales were stranded along Italy’s Adriatic coastline. Postmortem investigations on 3 female adult whales and 1 male fetus carried by the largest female revealed molecular and immunohistochemical evidence of dolphin morbillivirus infection. A possible role of the virus in the stranding event was considered.

Puumala Virus in Bank Voles, Lithuania [PDF - 415 KB - 3 pages]

Little is known about the presence of human pathogenic Puumala virus (PUUV) in Lithuania. We detected this virus in bank voles (Myodes glareolus) in a region of this country in which previously PUUV-seropositive humans were identified. Our results are consistent with heterogeneous distributions of PUUV in other countries in Europe.

Multidrug-Resistant Pathogens in Hospitalized Syrian Children [PDF - 1.34 MB - 3 pages]
D. Kassem et al.

Since 2013, wounded and ill children from Syria have received treatment in Israel. Screening cultures indicated that multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens colonized 89 (83%) of 107 children. For 58% of MDR infections, the pathogen was similar to that identified during screening. MDR screening of these children is valuable for purposes of isolation and treatment.
