Toscana virus (TOSV) (genus Phlebovirus, family Bunyaviridae) was isolated in 1971 from the sandfly Phlebotomus perniciosus in central Italy (Verani et al., 1982). We have investigated the role of TOSV in cases of CNS disease occurring during the summer in the island of Sardinia, Italy. Moreover, a sequence analysis has been performed to assess the circulating TOSV genotype. However, because of the small number of sequenced viral strains, we cannot rule out the cocirculation in the island of different genotypes.
