Dengue Fever

Dengue is an arbovirus (arthropod borne virus) that is most commonly reported among persons living in or traveling to warmer climates where the virus is present and actively being transmitted by mosquitoes. Dengue infection results in a febrile illness with severe headaches and body or joint pain.
Over the last several decades, dengue infections have become more common in many countries, including the United States. Since 2009, locally transmitted dengue infections have been documented in Key West, Florida.
