Barmah Forest virus is one alphavirus present in Australia. It is
transmitted by mosquitoes. Barmah Forest itself is down around the Vic-NSW
border in Australia and is where the 1st isolate originated.
It is closely related to Ross River virus (another State....a Townsville
River in Qld).
However the viruses are widespread throughout Australia. There are
diagnostic tests available (Made in Qld by Panbio P/L) which detect IgM and
IgG antibody.
It is usually a self limiting disease but may vary with the individual. It
primarily causes polyarthritis but also some other symptoms.
Here's some leads!
Cheers, Ian Carter
