Preview

Acute infection with Sin Nombre virus has been associated with development of hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS), a severe cardiopulmonary illness with respiratory failure and shock. We present two cases of Sin Nombre hantavirus infections that did not lead to marked pulmonary complications in two otherwise healthy young adults from Utah and California. Sin Nombre virus causes a wider spectrum of disease severity than has been previously reported.
