Abstract

In an epidemiologic study of Reye's syndrome in the state of Oklahoma over a 21 month period, a cluster of cases involving 11 patients, all of whom died, was identified. Eight of these cases occurred over a 4 month period and, on the basis of epidemiologic and laboratory evidence, appear to have been associated with a concurrent epidemic of influenza B virus infection.
