Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We reviewed the case definitions used by 21 influenza sentinel-based surveillance networks in Western Europe. Two clinical syndromes were used with a wide range of case definitions that nevertheless shared common criteria. Although there is currently no international consensus, efforts are being undertaken to standardise influenza case definitions in Europe.
