Resumen

RIQUELME O, RAÚL et al. Hantavirus infection associated to a staphylococcal sepsis: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2010, vol.138, n.3, pp. 338-340. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872010000300013.

We report a previously healthy 36-year-old mole who developed a pulmonary syndrome caused by Hantavirus infection. He was admitted to an intensive care unit in shock and respiratory failure and died four hours after admission. Blood cultures were positive for Staphylococcus aureus. This patient could be an index case that shows, for the first time, an association of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome with Staphylococcus aureus infection similar to what happens with other viruses.

Palabras llave : Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome; Shock, septic; Staphylococcus.
