Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEEV) can cause some serious pathology. This mosquito borne virus has seen an increase this year in the US.
We see an average of 7 human cases of EEE reported annually; however, there has been some 30 human cases to date in 2019.
Massachusetts and Michigan account for more than 20 cases alone.
What is EEE, what's the pathology and how do doctors treat patients with this virus?
Joining me to answer these questions and more is Massachusetts based infectious disease physician, Steven LaRosa, MD.
