Table 7 Risk factors for severe neurological status following hospital admission and/or at 1st follow-up, based on patients’ mRS scores (A) and WNV-N index scores (B)

From: Identifying risks for severity of neurological symptoms in Hungarian West Nile virus patients

Risk factors OR 95% C.I.
(A) mRS (moderately severe/ severe neurological status)
Age (< 65 years / 65+ years) (N = 66) 9.88 2.846–34.299
Comorbidities (2 or more) (no / yes) (N = 66) 5.20 1.577–17.149
Weakness/malaise (no / yes) (N = 66) 3.45 1.120–10.670
Complications (no / yes) (N = 43) --a
(B) WNV-N Index (moderately severe/ severe neurological status)
Complications (no / yes) (N = 43) 6.50 1.130–37.200
Age (< 65 years / 65+ years) (N = 66) 4.91 1.628–14.817
Comorbidities (2 or more) (no / yes) (N = 66) 4.59 1.530–13.778
Gait uncertainty (no / yes) (N = 66) 3.75 1.126–11.123
