Pogosta disease is a viral disease . The symptoms of the disease include usually rash , as well as mild fever and other flu -like symptoms; in most cases the symptoms last less than 5 days. However, in some cases, the patients develop a painful arthritis . There are no known chemical agents available to treat the disease.

ContentsCause[ edit ]

It has long been suspected that the disease is caused by a Sindbis-like virus , a positive-stranded RNA virus belonging to the Alphavirus genus and family Togaviridae . In 2002 a strain of Sindbis was isolated from patients during an outbreak of the Pogosta disease in Finland , confirming the hypothesis.

Epidemiology[ edit ]

This disease is mainly found in the Eastern parts of Finland ; a typical Pogosta disease patient is a middle-aged person who has been infected through a mosquito bite while picking berries in the autumn. The prevalence of the disease is about 100 diagnosed cases every year, with larger outbreaks occurring in 7-year intervals.

Etymology[ edit ]

It is also known as Karelian fever and Ockelbo disease. The names are derived from the words Pogosta , Karelia and Ockelbo .
