Viral hemorrhagic fever

Common Name(s)

Viral hemorrhagic fever

Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are a group of illnesses caused by a family of viruses: arenaviruses, filoviruses, bunyaviruses, and flaviviruses. VHFs usually impact multiple systems. Symptoms vary depending on which kind of VHF is active in the body, but most often the vascular system (the veins and arteries) and the body's ability to regulate itself become impaired, causing bleeding (hemorrhage). Treatment, like symptoms, depends on which type of virus is transmitted. VHFs can range from mild to life-threatening illnesses.
