Abstract: The paper is based upon the results of clinic-pathological and virological correlations in 29 lethal cases of influenza in Saint-Petersburg and Leningrad region during the epidemics 2009/2010. Immunohistochemical analysis of lungs, heart and brain using monoclonal sera to HA and HP proteins of influenza virus, virological and morphological analysis of experimental influenza in mice infected by A/WSN/33 (HIN1) and A/California/07/09 (H1N1) viruses had been carried out. In the majority of investigated strains was proved the amino acid mutation with replacement D222G. The replication of virus was demonstrated at the late stages of diseases, but the desquamation of respiratory epithelium and cytoproliferative weren't found out. Besides the "influenza cells", previously described by A. V Zinserling the cells with enlarge light nuclei were observed. Patients with influenza died from respiratory distress syndrome with minimal bacterial infection. We've established that H1N1 virus not only damages the cells of respiratory epithelium and alveolar macrophages but it can injure endothelium of different organs and neuroglia. The questions which have to be discussed are listed.
