Abstract

Immediately before deployment (Fall 2012) and after deployment (Spring 2013) in support of United Nations peacekeeping operations, Mongolian Armed Forces medical personnel obtained serum samples from the first contingent of Mongolian peacekeepers deploying to South Sudan to monitor serologic evidence of exposure to diseases that cause acute febrile illness. A total of 632 paired samples were tested for IgG antibody for the following (number of seroconversions in parentheses): (spotted fever and typhus groups) (25), West Nile fever virus (WNV) (23), (causative agent of Q fever) (12), dengue virus (8), leptospirosis (6), chikungunya virus (0), Congo–Crimean hemorrhagic fever virus (0), Japanese encephalitis virus (0), and Rift Valley fever virus (0). There was also evidence of exposure to WNV, , leptospirosis, and before deployment.
