Gulf War and Health: Volume 5. Infectious Diseases

Requested by Congress in P.L. 105-277 and P.L. 105-368, this report is the latest in a series of studies on the potential health effects of service during the 1991 Gulf War. The report evaluates what scientific and medical literature reveals about the potential long-term health effects of leishmaniasis, sandfly fever, and other infectious diseases soldiers may have contracted during their service.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 16, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
