          Abstract

          En la actualidad, el panorama epidemiológico internacional se presenta con enfermedades infecciosas graves como el Ébola. Recientemente han ocurrido brotes en tres países del África Occidental, por lo que la Organización Mundial de la Salud ha insistido acerca del peligro que existe sobre la expansión y gravedad de esta epidemia. Se realizó una revisión bibliográfica del tema con el objetivo de actualizar al médico sobre aspectos esenciales de la fiebre hemorrágica o enfermedad del Ébola. Los índices de letalidad se encuentran entre el 50 y 90 %, por lo que la Organización Mundial de la Salud hace énfasis en la importancia de la prevención mediante la higiene, lo que constituye un aspecto clave.
