Bottom Line: We used geographic information systems to characterize the dynamic change in spatial distribution of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in Beijing, People's Republic of China.The seasonal variation in its incidence was observed by creating an epidemic curve.HFRS was associated with developed land, orchards, and rice paddies.

Figure 2: Temporal distribution of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), Beijing, People’s Republic of China, 1997–2006.

Mentions: An epidemic curve was created to show the temporal distribution of HFRS in Beijing. The annual incidence had sharply increased from 1997 to 1999; thereafter it fluctuated around 0.8 ± 0.2/100,000 persons (Figure 2). Within each year, the incidence varied markedly; most cases occurred in winter and spring, usually peaking in April, although the disease was reported in almost every month (Figure 2).
