Summaries for Lassa Fever

About this section


Disease Ontology:9 A viral infectious disease that results in infection, has material basis in lassa virus, which is transmitted by multimammate rat of the genus mastomys. the infection has symptom fever, has symptom retrosternal pain, has symptom sore throat, has symptom back pain, has symptom cough, has symptom abdominal pain, has symptom vomiting, has symptom diarrhea, has symptom conjunctivitis, has symptom facial swelling, has symptom proteinuria (protein in the urine), and has symptom mucosal bleeding.

MalaCards based summary: Lassa Fever, also known as lassa hemorrhagic fever, is related to lymphocytic choriomeningitis and vaccinia, and has symptoms including abnormality of the menstrual cycle, abnormality of temperature regulation and spontaneous abortion. An important gene associated with Lassa Fever is DAG1 (dystroglycan 1 (dystrophin-associated glycoprotein 1)), and among its related pathways is Allograft rejection. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and testes.
