English term or phrase: lassa fever
Definitia din dict. medical (dar e in engleza!!):

Lassa fever,Lassa hemorrhagic fever;a severe form of epidemic hemorrhagic fever which is highly fatal. It was first recognized in Lassa, Nigeria, caused by Lassa virus, a member of the Arenaviridae, and characterized by high fever, sore throat, severe muscle aches, skin rash with hemorrhages, headache, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea; the multimammate rat Mastomys natalensis serves as reservoir, but person-to-person transmission also is common.

agree  Maria Diaconu: febra de Lassa, am întâlnit la http://www.unibuc.ro/eBooks/biologie/geomed/prefata.htm - denumirea vine de la numele satului Lassa din Nigeria, unde a fost consemnată prima dată, prin 1970, cf. Oxford Dictionary of English

agree  Ciprian Patrascu: Oricum, traducerea trebuie să fie . Numai că eu ştiam că e vorba de Lhassa. Aşa apare şi în tematica ministerului, unde se vede că e vorba de un arenavirus: http://www.perfmed.ro/primariat/tematici/pdf/epidemiologie.p...

  -> Mulţumesc. În engleză apare foarte rar ca "Lhasa fever", şi bănuiesc că e o greşeală - după câte ştiu, Lhasa e în Tibet, iar satul nigerian se numeşte Lassa.
