Abstract

Influenza, a highly communicable disease, causes variable epidemics annually and imposes public health problems and socioeconomic burden. In addition to vaccine, antiviral medication has an important role in treatment and prevention of influenza virus infection. As influenza virus is undergoing change of antigenicity and antiviral susceptibility, proper use of antiviral medication is important. This guideline encompasses treatment and chemoprophylaxis with antiviral medications for seasonal influenza based on the current influenza situation in Korea. These recommendations were intended for physicians in all medical specialties who provide care for influenza patients.
