ABSTRACT
We studied the 2-year death rate of 246 adults discharged from hospital after experiencing acute West Nile Virus infection in Israel during 2000. The age- and sex-adjusted death rates were significantly higher than in the general population. This excess was greater for men. Significant adverse prognostic factors were age, male sex, diabetes mellitus, and dementia.

Figure 2: Kaplan-Meier survival curves for 2-year mortality follow-up of 246 patients discharged from hospital after West Nile Virus infection during the epidemic in Israel in 2000, by sex. *Survival after 1 year; **survival after 2 years; ***relative risk (RR) for women compared with men, adjusted for age, diabetes, ischemic heart disease, immunodeficiency, cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, and dementia.

Mentions: The Kaplan-Meier survival curves are shown for the total cohort and for men and women separately (Figures 1 and 2). Overall, after 1 year, 7.7% had died and after 2 years, 12.2%. After 1 year the death rate was 6.4% for women compared with 9.1% for men (p = 0.025), and after 2 years it was 10.4% for women and 14.1% for men (p = 0. 021).
