Abstract: Toscana virus (TOSV), an arthropod-borne phlebovirus, is an important agent of acute meningitis and meningoencephalitis in the Mediterranean area. The epidemiology of the infection in humans in Catalonia is at present unknown. In this study, we found a seroprevalence of infection of 6%, and 2 clinical cases were detected by serology and/or PCR.
