LP14236-1   La Crosse virus
La Crosse virus is a mosquito-borne virus causing encephalitis in the United States at higher rates than bacterial meningitis. The disease is recurrent during warm seasons in the Mid-West and mid-Atlantic whose hardwood trees provide breeding sites for the mosquito species Aedes triseriatus. Testing for La Crosse virus should be perfomed on young patients with symptoms of encephalitis in these two parts of the United States during the summer and fall.

LP14236-1   La Crosse virus
La Crosse encephalitis is an encephalitis caused by an arbovirus (the La Crosse virus) which has a mosquito vector (Ochlerotatus triseriatus synonym Aedes triseriatus).

Historically, most cases of LAC encephalitis occur in the upper Midwestern states (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio). Recently, more cases are being reported from states in the mid-Atlantic (West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina) and southeastern (Alabama and Mississippi) regions of the country.
