During January and February 1978, an outbreak of respiratory infection occurred at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Both influenza A/Texas and A/USSR were isolated in the hospitalized patients. Two different strains of influenza A have not previously been documented during a single outbreak. This raises the possibility of recombination with emergence of a new antigenic strain.
