Abstract: Prior to the 1999 New York City outbreak few had ever heard of West Nile virus. That changed rapidly once the illness caused by the virus resulted in deaths, hospitalizations, and early fears of the unknown etiology of the disease. In some ways it was like Legionnaire's Disease all over again. This review, although not extensive, will cover many of the medical, biological, epidemiological, diagnostic, and public health considerations regarding this new entry onto the list of disease agents seen in the United States.
