URL of this page: Also called: Break-bone fever, Dengue fever Dengue is an infectious disease caused by a virus. You can get it if an infected mosquito bites you. It is common in warm, wet areas of the world. Outbreaks occur in the rainy season. Dengue is rare in the United States. Symptoms include a high fever, headaches, joint and muscle pain, vomiting and a rash. Most people with dengue recover within 2 weeks. Until then, drinking lots of fluids, resting and taking non-aspirin fever-reducing medicines might help. Sometimes dengue turns into dengue hemorrhagic fever, which causes bleeding from your nose, gums or under your skin. It can also become dengue shock syndrome, which causes massive bleeding and shock. These forms of dengue are life-threatening. To lower your risk when traveling in dengue-prone countries

Dengue and dengue haemorrhagic fever
Key facts
  • Dengue is a mosquito-borne infection that causes a severe flu-like illness, and sometimes a potentially lethal complication called dengue haemorrhagic fever. Global incidence of dengue has grown dramatically in recent decades. About two fifths of the world's population are now at risk. Dengue is found in tropical and sub-tropical climates worldwide, mostly in urban and semi-urban areas. Dengue haemorrhagic fever is a leading cause of serious illness and death among children in some Asian countries. There is no specific treatment for dengue, but appropriate medical care frequently saves the lives of patients with the more serious dengue haemorrhagic fever. The only way to prevent dengue virus transmission is to combat the disease-carrying mosquitoes.

(pronounced /ˈdɛŋɡeɪ/ /ˈdɛŋɡiː/ ) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are acute febrile diseases transmitted by mosquitoes, which occur in the tropics , can be life-threatening, and are caused by four closely related virus serotypes of the genus Flavivirus , family Flaviviridae It was identified and named in 1779. It is also known as breakbone fever , since it can be extremely painful. Unlike malaria , dengue is just as prevalent in the urban districts of its range as in rural areas. Each serotype is sufficiently different that there is no cross-protection and epidemics caused by multiple serotypes (hyperendemicity) can occur. Dengue is transmitted to humans by the

Dengue/Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever
Dengue fever is an acute febrile infectious disease, caused by all four serotypes (1, 2, 3 or 4) of a virus from genus Flavivirus, called dengue virus. Its the most prevalent flavivirus infection of humans, with a worldwide distribution in the tropics and warm areas of the temperate zone corresponding to that of the principal vector, Aedes aegypti. When simultaneous or sequential introduction of two or more serotypes occurs in the same area, there may be an increased number of cases with worse clinical presentation (dengue hemorrhagic fever). The term hemorrhagic is imprecise, because what characterizes this form of the disease is not the presence of hemorrhagic manifestations, but the abrupt increase of capillary permeability, with diffuse capillary leakage of plasma, hemoconcentration and, in some cases, with non-hemorrhagic hypovolemic shock (dengue shock syndrome).
The highest incidence of dengue is in southeast Asia, India and the American tropics, where A. aegypti can be found. In the 1980s, dengue emerged in explosive epidemics in Rio de Janeiro (1986 - serotype 1 and 1990 - serotype 2 was isolated in Niteri city), So Paulo and in many other towns and cities in Brazil. In areas such as southeast of Asia, where all four dengue virus types are hyperendemic, children are almost exclusively affected, and seroprevalence approaches 100% by young adulthood. Transmission occurs by the bite of Aedes aegypti female mosquitoes - the same vector of urban yellow fever - a day-active species with low fly-autonomy that is abundant in and around human habitations. In Brazil and other countries Aedes albopictus may also be responsible for transmission. Viremic humans (till the fifth day of disease) serve as the source of virus for mosquito infection; there is not person-to-person transmission. Movement of viremic humans provides the principal means of spread, and rapid air travel is a factor in most recent epidemic emergences.

Information resources
Dengue is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease of humans that in recent years has become a major international public health concern. Globally, 2.5 billion people live in areas where dengue viruses can be transmitted. The geographical spread of both the mosquito vectors and the viruses has led to the global resurgence of epidemic dengue fever and emergence of dengue hemorrhagic fever (dengue/DHF) in the past 25 years with the development of hyperendemicity in many urban centers of the tropics. Transmitted by the main vector, the Aedes aegytpi mosquito, there are four distinct, but closely related, viruses that cause dengue. Recovery from infection by one provides lifelong immunity against that serotype but confers only partial and transient protection against subsequent infection by the other three. There is good evidence that sequential infection increases the risk of more serious disease resulting in DHF. DHF was first recognized in the 1950s during the dengue epidemics in the Philippines and Thailand. By 1970 nine countries had experienced epidemic DHF and now, the number has increased more than fourfold and continues to rise. Today emerging DHF cases are causing increased dengue epidemics in the Americas, and in Asia, where all four dengue viruses are endemic, DHF has become a leading cause of hospitalization and death among children in several countries.

Dengue is transmitted by the bite of an Aedes mosquito infected with any one of the four dengue viruses. It occurs in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. Symptoms appear 3—14 days after the infective bite. Dengue fever is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults. Symptoms range from a mild fever, to incapacitating high fever, with severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pain, and rash. There are no specific antiviral medicines for dengue. It is important to maintain hydration. Use of acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. aspirin) and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Ibuprofen) is not recommended. Dengue haemorrhagic fever (fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, bleeding) is a potentially lethal complication, affecting mainly children. Early clinical diagnosis and careful clinical management by experienced physicians and nurses increase survival of patients.

A: Dengue is a viral fever and is caused by 4 types of closely related viruses. Q: How does dengue fever occur? A: Dengue viruses spread to humans by the bite of female mosquitoes. These mosquitoes acquire the virus while feeding on the blood of an infected person. The virus circulates in the blood of infected humans for 2 –7 days leading to fever. Recovery from infection provided immunity against that particular virus but offers only partial protection against the other three viruses. Infact, subsequent infection increases the risk of a more complicated fever called as " dengue hemorrhagic fever ".

Dengue fever
Published: October 21, 2010 THE dengue virus now appears to be almost unstoppable, as more than 250 people in Lahore alone have fallen prey to these pesky bugs. Unfortunately, the disease is not confined to Lahore, and cases are being reported from every nook and cranny of the country, which shows the kind of virus we are faced with. The mosquito, carrying this virus, seems to have spread in many parts of Pakistan, thus posing a threat to the entire population. Worse still, no vaccine of the virus has yet been made and as such there is no specific treatment or medicine. The only way to keep the dangerous disease at bay is through preventive measures, which includes the use of pesticides and mosquito repellents.
What makes the situation really tricky to deal with is the fact that unlike ordinary mosquitoes, the ones carrying the dengue virus breed on clean water and are active especially at dawn and sunset. Along with the use of insect repellents, doctors are particularly urging the people to ensure that all water tanks or containers in their homes are properly covered to keep the mosquitoes away. One cannot help but worry more about the flood-affected areas, where the population is now a sitting duck for the tricky virus.
There is no doubt that so far as preventives measures like fumigation drives are concerned, the government has to play its part and see to it that places most likely to be the breeding grounds of mosquitoes are heavily sprayed. However, since the functioning of the local governments, especially in big cities, has been literally paralysed on account of suspension of funds by provincial governments, and the former have been in doldrums for the past two years, the fumigation drive that used to become a regular exercise at this time of the year has almost come to a halt. It is also a fact that so long as fumigation had been carried out effectively, the virus had remained under manageable limits. It is a paramount duty of the government to give precedence to the welfare of the people to any other interest.

September 2010- Board of Directors Bi-Annual Report
With the summer coming to a close and Dengue Vaccine Effort completing its 15th month of operations, it has come time to announce a shift in focus for the organizations objectives. Dengue Vaccine Effort has recently moved away from raising money for a vaccine towards raising awareness about the fever. Through our fundraising efforts we have realized the importance of bringing the issue to the general public before serious fundraising efforts will be fruitful. Community involvement is vital component towards finding a viable solution. It is with this idea in mind that Dengue Vaccine Effort attempts to promote awareness. With a recent outbreak in Florida, it is becoming increasingly important that the United States becomes more aware of dengue fever. During the upcoming months, Dengue Vaccine Effort will focus on educating the younger generations on the dangers and severity of dengue fever. The organization is distributing informational pamphlets and speaking to the students personally. By distributing information about dengue fever and its severity and maintaining this website, Dengue Vaccine Effort hopes to promote awareness of this growing problem. Through this press release, Dengue Vaccine Effort urges everyone to take a look through our website and read a little bit about dengue fever. By educating yourself, you can help stop the spread of dengue fever.
