Abstract

Alkhumra virus (ALKV) is an emerging tick-borne flavivirus known to cause a neglected tropical disease in the Middle East. The magnitude of the disease among European returning travelers is still unknown probably because the inadequate knowledge about the real geographic distribution of ALKV infection have limited its diagnosis. Up to now in Italy were reported only three cases; here we report the fourth case of ALKV in a returning traveler from south Egypt.
