Omsk haemorrhagic fever virus (OHFV), although related to other tickborne encephalitis flaviviridae, causes a rather different disease Omsk haemorrhagic fever with the neurological symptoms less prominent than haemorrhage. It is in the same group as yellow fever being an enveloped single-stranded-RNA virus with a 10787 base positive-sense genome and spherical or polygonal 40nm shape[1]. The domain III (DIII) of E protein may be a target for a vaccine[2].
