Sandfly fever virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected phlebotomine sandfly (genus Phlebotomus) shown in the Figure.
Sandfly fever is an infectious disease which is characterized with formation of a papule on the site of sandfly bite, high fever, rash and diffuse muscle and joint pain and with epidemics.
Although first data on sandfly fever were acquired from the Balkan region, few studies were published specifically about the situation in Kosovo (4): in 1976, a total of 9.
It was determined that the method detection limit (MDL) for the pathogen kits using 5 adult female arthropods as the matrix for Plasmodium ssp, dengue fever virus, chikungunya virus, Leishmania ssp, and sandfly fever Sicilian virus were 97; 2,500; 25,000; 19,000; and 1,300 copies, respectively.
Antibodies against sandfly fever viruses (genus Phlebovirus) were detected in serum by using a commercial sandfly fever assay (IIFT Mosaic 1 IgG immunofluorescence assay; Euroimmun).
Punique virus, a novel phlebovirus, related to sandfly fever Naples virus, isolated from sandflies collected in Tunisia.
Forty-one days after symptom onset, a second serum sample was taken from the patient and tested in parallel with the first serum sample by indirect immunofluorescence to detect IgM and IgG antibodies against 4 phleboviruses: TOSV, SFNV, sandfly fever Sicilian virus (SFSV), and Cyprus virus (Sandfly Fever Virus Mosaic 1; Euroimmun, Lubeck, Germany).
We found that 2 phleboviruses belonging to the Sandfly fever Naples virus species, TOSV and Punique virus, are cocirculating in northern Tunisia.

Pairwise comparison demonstrated the following: 1) all TOSV S segments were highly conserved; 2) the L segment demonstrated less conservation than the N gene at the nucleotide or deduced amino acid levels; 3) TOSV M segments were the most divergent; and 4) variation in M segments was higher than that among RVFV strains but less pronounced than that within the group of sandfly fever Sicilian viruses or sandfly fever Naples viruses (Table).
