dc.description.abstractDengue fever is the most common cause of fever in travelers returning from the Caribbean, Central America, and South Central Asia.* Dengue infections are commonly reported from most tropical countries of the South Pacific, Asia, the Caribbean, the Americas, and Africa. This disease is caused by four similar viruses (DENV-1, -2, -3, and -4) and is spread through the bites of infected mosquitoes. For information on current outbreaks, consult CDC’s Travelers’ Health website (http://www.cdc.gov/travel). Dengue fever is a severe, flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults, but seldom causes death. Dengue should be suspected when a high fever (40°C/104°F) is accompanied by two of the following symptoms: severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pains, nausea, vomiting, swollen glands or rash. Symptoms usually last for 2–7 days, after an incubation period of 4–10 days following the bite from an infected mosquito.
