    Abstract

    BACKGROUND:

    In March 2002, an outbreak of low-pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) A(H7N2) was detected among commercial poultry operations in Virginia.
    METHODS:

    We performed a serosurvey of 80 government workers involved in efforts to control the outbreak.
    RESULTS:

    One study participant who assisted with disposal of infected birds tested positive for neutralizing antibodies to influenza A(H7N2) by microneutralization assay and H7-specific IgM antibodies by ELISA. The acute infection was temporally associated with an influenza-like illness that resolved without hospitalization.
    CONCLUSION:

    This study documents the earliest evidence of human infection with an H7 influenza virus of the North American lineage This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
