Dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are caused by one of four closely related, but antigenically distinct, virus serotypes (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3, and DEN-4), of the genus Flavivirus . Infection with one of these serotypes does not provide cross-protective immunity, so persons living in a dengue-endemic area can have four dengue infections during their lifetimes. Dengue is primarily a disease of the tropics, and the viruses that cause it are maintained in a cycle that involves humans and Aedes aegypti , a domestic, day-biting mosquito that prefers to feed on humans. Infection with dengue viruses produces a spectrum of clinical illness ranging from a nonspecific viral syndrome to severe and fatal hemorrhagic disease. Important risk factors for DHF include the strain and serotype of the infecting virus, as well as the age, immune status, and genetic predisposition of the patient.
History of Dengue
The first reported epidemics of dengue fever occurred in 1779-1780 in Asia, Africa, and North America; the near simultaneous occurrence of outbreaks on three continents indicates that these viruses and their mosquito vector have had a worldwide distribution in the tropics for more than 200 years. During most of this time, dengue fever was considered a benign, nonfatal disease of visitors to the tropics. Generally, there were long intervals (10-40 years) between major epidemics, mainly because the viruses and their mosquito vector could only be transported between population centers by sailing vessels.

Mosquitoes and Dengue
Note that some information appearing in this document may not be current as of 1996.
Dengue fever, although little known in the United States, is a serious disease of Asia and Africa. Classic dengue, known for its low mortality but very uncomfortable symptoms, has become more serious, both in frequency and mortality, in recent years. Dengue is caused by an RNA flavivirus exhibiting many serotypes. Symptoms vary according to the serotype. The main vector of dengue, Aedes aegypti , flourishing in mankind's urban to suburban environments, has spread the disease to many parts of the world. Another mosquito, Aedes albopictus , a less important urban vector, has helped maintain the prevalence of dengue in Asian regions. A. aegypti is the most important vector of dengue. The spread of dengue throughout the world can be directly attributed to the proliferation and adaptation of this mosquito. The insect originated in Africa as a "tree-hole" mosquito, breeding in any temporary puddles of water left by recent rains. The "original" mosquito, it is believed, proliferated only during high humidity and rain. Only the eggs survived when the rain stopped and the puddles evaporated. Aedes eggs do need water to hatch, however. Thus, adult preponderance declined as the rains ceased. In short, the adult mosquitoes would bite (acting as possible dengue vectors) only during the rainy season. When man invented pottery and urbanized his surroundings, the mosquito developed a strain that could breed in man-made containers (i.e., clay jars) all year. Therefore, as the hypothesis suggests, this new strain of A. aegypti became more adapted to "urban" life as people moved away from the proximity of natural water and started to sequester water in containers.

dengue AND dengue HAEMORRHAGIC FEVER. dengue is a mosquitoborne infection whichin recent years has become a major international public health concern.
Fact Sheet No 117
Revised April 2002
Dengue is a mosquito-borne infection which in recent years has become a major international public health concern. Dengue is found in tropical and sub-tropical regions around the world, predominantly in urban and semi-urban areas. Dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF), a potentially lethal complication, was first recognized in the 1950s during the dengue epidemics in the Philippines and Thailand, but today DHF affects most Asian countries and has become a leading cause of hospitalisation and death among children in several of them. 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. Prevalence The global prevalence of dengue has grown dramatically in recent decades. The disease is now endemic in more than 100 countries in Africa, the Americas, the Eastern Mediterranean, South-east Asia and the Western Pacific. South-east Asia and the Western Pacific are most seriously affected. Before 1970 only nine countries had experienced DHF epidemics, a number that had increased more than four-fold by 1995.

Dengue Fever
Somewhere in Tanzania, maybe it was in Uganda, a lucky mosquito found its prey, zoomed in on its target and stole some blood from an unlucky human. This bite began innocently enough - happening during the day, not causing much of an itch - but several days later it lost all pretense of innocence. Lethargy, an unusual amount of tiredness, was the first sign that something was going awry. It was soon followed by a headache behind the eyes that throbbed and pounded, with a sensation of pressure like a kettle brewing and boiling. A fever, mild at first, but later intense with sweating, came bundled with ferocious muscle aches. These aches were rooted deep in the calves and back, and felt like being punched from the inside-out. The once-dinner-for-a-stray mosquito became apathetic and lost all appetite. What on earth could this be? Malaria? Typhoid? What, what, what? A funny pink rash showed up soon after. It didn't itch, it didn't bleed, it didn't hurt. It just spread - over the chest, belly, and back. It, along with the fever, lightened after two days but just two days later returned with even greater dramatic force. Ah, I think we have enough clues and a diagnosis now... There can be a few days respite but the fever and rash often recur, and this is known as the 'saddleback pattern'. With Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever the blood cells are crippled and bleeding develops - in the gums, the skin, the intestinal tract. With the shock syndrome the blood vessels don't work quite right, and the blood pressure drops precipitously; as a result the blood fails to meet the metabolic demands of the cells in the body - which is the definition of shock.

Dengue viruses are transmitted by mosquitoes, which are most active during the day. These vector mosquitoes are found near human habitations and are often present indoors. Epidemic transmission is usually seasonal, during and shortly after the rainy season. influenza measles malaria typhoid ... leptospirosis , and scarlet fever. The symptoms of dengue can be treated with bed rest, fluids, and medications to reduce fever, such as acetaminophen; aspirin should be avoided. Travelers should alert their physician of any fever illnesses occurring within 3 weeks after leaving an endemic area. There is no vaccine for dengue fever; therefore, the traveler should avoid mosquito bites by remaining in well screened or air-conditioned areas. Travelers to tropical areas are advised to use mosquito repellents on skin and clothing, to bring aerosol insecticides to use indoors, and use bednets.

9. Aedes Aegypti And Dengue Fever
Paper on Aedes aegypti as a disease vector.
Aedes aegypti and Dengue fever by Roland Mortimer, Rio de Janeiro
There are many types of mosquito living in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, we can roughly divide them into two groups, CULEX and AEDES, but perhaps one of the most important is Aedes aegypti . According to the World Health Organisation, the virus for Dengue fever is the most important arbovirus to man in the world, and since Aedes has been found to transmit this virus, it has been widely studied and blamed as the vector. This mosquito is small in comparison to others, usually between three to four millimetres in length discounting leg length. It is totally black apart from white 'spots' on the body and head regions and white rings on the legs. The thorax is decorated with a white 'Lyre' shape of which the 'chords' are two dull yellow lines. Its wings are translucent and bordered with scales. At rest, the insect turns up its hind legs in a curved fashion and usually cleans them by rubbing one against the other, or exercises them by crossing them and alternately raising and lowering them, this may even be a way of helping digested 'food' along the alimentary canal, but this is just a guess on my part.
Many people believe mosquitoes only live two or three days, but in actual fact, left unmolested they can live for months. The males of all species of mosquitoes do not bite humans or animals of any species, they live on fruit. Only the female bites for blood which she needs to mature her eggs. The eggs of most species are laid together in a raft form, but

    DENGUE FEVER Q: What is dengue (pronounced as den- goo) fever?
    Dengue is a viral fever and is caused by 4 types of closely related viruses.
    Q: How does dengue fever occur?
    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 ".
    Q: What are the clinical features of dengue fever?
    In infants and young children, dengue presents as a mild fever with rash. Older children and adults may have the classical symptoms of high fever, severe headache, pain behind the eyes, pain in the joints and muscles and rash. The pain in the back may be so severe that it is also called as backbreaking fever. Dengue fever is usually self-limiting.

    RESUMEN ABSTRACT Dengue is a viral disease with clinical features that vary in intensity according to certain host and viral strain characteristics. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is practically a new clinical entity for the majority of physicians in the Americas and therefore the need to disseminate the most important clinical and epidemiological features that allow for the opportune diagnosis and therapy. The clinical spectrum of the disease includes asymptomatic to severe hemorrhagic forms and each stage has its own signs and symptoms. This clinical description explores the physiological mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of dengue hemorrhagic fever. This paper gives special emphasis to the alarm signs that foretell the presentation of the shock syndrome requiring emergency treatment and advances a classification scheme for epidemics. This scheme identifies the type of treatment and which patients need observation, laboratory tests and hospital care.

    Dengue fever is a viral disease carried by the Aedes mosquitos. It is characterized by sudden onset, high fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain and rash. Nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, and altered taste sensation are common. A rash may appear 3 to 4 days after onset of fever and may spread from the torso to the arms, legs, and face. The disease is usually benign and self-limiting after about 7 days. Dengue may also present as a severe and fatal hemorrhagic disease, called dengue hemorrhagic fever. There is no specific treatment for dengue infection.
