Dear Lika, I was reading your post on Marburg, I'm sorry to hear that about your husband, I haven't been on here in a while but what I've read in my Medical book is that Marburg is a Virus acquired from exposure to infected primate tissues. It says that it is highly infectious causing severe disease that affects many organs, The reservoir for the virus seems to reside only in Central Africa. I read about this in my Merck Manual of Medical Information. I would be sure to research it on the computer like Gretchen said, hope this helps you some!! I'll be praying for you and your husband, I have some lesions on my spinal cord and a syrinx in my spinal cord between C6-C7. They have to keep a good watch on it because it can get bigger and burst and the Doctors told me that it could cause death if it gets to full of spinal fluid. I'm due for a MRI soon to get it checked. I have alot of tremors in my legs,arms,hands and even in my jaw, it makes my teeth chatter sometimes, it's very irratating but can't let anything get me down, just gotta be positive and do the best I can. Hope your husband does well with ever treatment they decide to give him, God Bless ya and take care.
