A 27-year-old woman presented to a hospital with symptoms resembling pyelonephritis; respiratory distress did not develop until nearly a day after admission and she subsequently died. The Unexplained Deaths and Critical Illnesses Project of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed Sin Nombre virus infection by the results of serological testing and sequencing of the viral genome; staining of Sin Nombre virus antigen in the pulmonary capillaries was relatively weak.
