The importance of viral structural and non-structural antigens in flavivirus pathogenesis has not been satisfactorily assessed. This review examines the antigenic interrelationships of the flaviviruses, considers some of the implications of antigenic cross reactivity in virus virulence and highlights potential consequences of virus-antibody interactions.
