Abstract

Background: Toscana virus (TOSV) is a sandfly-borne pathogen causing febrile diseases and neuroinvasive infections in humans. Definitive diagnosis of TOSV infections frequently requires the detection of viral RNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or in circulation, which can be achieved prior to seroconversion.
