Little is known about the presence of human pathogenic Puumala virus (PUUV) in Lithuania. We detected this virus in bank voles (Myodes glareolus) in a region of this country in which previously PUUV-seropositive humans were identified. Our results are consistent with heterogeneous distributions of PUUV in other countries in Europe. ____ Correction in: Emerg Infect Dis. 2017 Apr; 23(4): 724: Vol. 23, No. 1 The GenBank accession no.
