Abstract
During Dec 1984 and 1985, lungs of 78 dogs collected from EHF endemic areas in Anhui Province were detected for EHF antigen by IFAT, 5 were positive, the positivity rates were 6.4%. Two strains of EHFV were isolated from EHF antigen-positive lung tissue.These results indicate that dogs can naturally be infected by EHFV.Since dogs have the habits of eating mice and contact closely with human, its role in the transmitting of EHF is worth further study.
Key Words: EHFV;  dog;  IFAT
