  • Abstract

    Enterovirus infection is an actual problem in the modern world. The causative agents of this infection are widespread and characterized by various variants of the disease clinical course (from the signs of acute respiratory viral infection to serous meningitis or myocarditis), which requires a detailed differential diagnosis during the provision of medical care to the patients with various clinical patterns. The methods of epidemiological analysis and generally accepted methods of variational statistics were used in this work. The work carried out by the authors showed that regional health-care systems and certain medical organizations have the problems of dealing with infected enterovirus infection, carrying out antiepidemic (preventive) measures in epidemiological foci of enterovirus infection, the organization of work in the framework of hygiene education, and others. The epidemiological analysis of 2012–2017 allows to talk about the tendency of enterovirus infection incidence increase in Russia (4.7 times) and the Republic of Tatarstan (14.3 times) and the increase of the incidence of enterovirus meningitis in Russia (2.3 times). This problem requires the adoption of effective management decisions, as well as their careful implementation.
