DENGUE FEVER

INTRODUCTION
Dengue fever virus is considered the most important arbovirus in terms of morbidity, mortality and economic cost with an estimated 100 million cases of dengue fever occurring throughout the world annually. Dengue is transmitted by mosquito and occurs in epidemic and endemic proportions throughout tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Infection with dengue virus causes a wide number of clinical symptoms which range in severity. These include fever, a maculopapular rash and headache. Primary infection with dengue usually results in a febrile, self limiting disease, however, secondary infection may result in severe complications such as dengue shock syndrome (DSS) or dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF). Patients diagnosed with dengue in endemic areas such as South East Asia generally have secondary infection, whereas patients in non endemic areas are usually diagnosed with primary infection. Characteristic antibody responses to the disease enable serological diagnosis and differentiation between primary and secondary dengue.
