Abstract : In accordance with conditions of infection and other epidemiological features agricultural, industrial, forest and environmental epidemiological types of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome incidence are distinguished differing markedly by sex, age and occupation of patients and seasonal distribution of infections. Human morbidity during epidemic outbreaks and in the interepidemic periods differs not only by the number of cases, but also by prevalence of different epidemiological types of cases, which is very important in planning prophylactic and antiepidemic measures.
