Abstract: to assess the potential role of influenza virus in fatal pneumonia during the epidemic and interepidemic periods. MATERIAL AND METHODS An immunohistochemical method was used to clinically and morphologically analyze 40 fatal outcomes of acute pneumonias in 2009-2013. Laboratory tests could not establish the diagnosis of influenza in 20 cases of the study group with clinical and/or morphological pattern of this illness. Seventeen cases occurred during the epidemic period (autopsies from November 2009 to January 2010) and the seasonal rise of morbidity; 3 cases were observed during the interepidemic period. A control group was additionally formed from 20 cases with neither clinical nor further morphological evidence of suspected influenza in the presence of pneumonia in both the epidemic and interepidemic periods.
