  • Description: To The Editor: Woodrats (Neotoma spp.) are natural hosts of Whitewater Arroyo virus (WWAV) and other Tacaribe serocomplex viruses (family Arenaviridae) in the western United States and northern Mexico (1). The results of a previous study (2) suggested that WWAV or Tacaribe serocomplex viruses antigenically closely related to WWAV are etiologic agents of severe febrile illnesses in humans in the United States. We note that Junín virus and other South American Tacaribe serocomplex viruses are etiologic agents of hemorrhagic fever in humans (3).
