In 1977, DEN-1 was introduced and caused major epidemics throughout the region over a 16-year period. The mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus typically live in and around houses, breeding in standing water that can collect in such things as used automobile tires. The syndrome causes kidney problems, fevers, and rarely, bleeding. Both IgG and IgM are produced after 5—7 days.
59 The course usually begins with the sudden onset of fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, pharyngitis, lymphadenopathy and sometimes a rash, which may be petechial or even ecchymotic early in the course.
Moreau JP, Rosen L, Sangrain J, et al. In summary, these findings suggest that in 2008, the imported ECSA strains appear to have displaced the previously endemic Asian genotype, causing an extensive outbreak throughout the country, particularly in rural areas. Dengue fever, Dengue Hemorrhagic fever, Dengue shock syndrome- The 2009 clinical diagnosis involves:• Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Implementation of such surveillance systems would require continuous technical assistance and training and increased and sustainable funding from both local and international partners. In August 1996, cases of DF were reported to the Directorate of Health for French Polynesia.
17,81,82 However, cases of DHF have been described in patients with primary dengue infection, 34,35,78,79,83 and the denominators for estimating proportions of primary and secondary infections that result in DHF have been difficult to evaluate with certainty.
The criteria for arbovirus surveillance and diagnosis must therefore be based on extensive clinical, epidemiological and laboratory findings. 28,29 The emergence of DHF in the Americas 1,15,30-32 is believed by some researchers to be following a similar pattern to that seen in Southeast Asia more than 30 years ago.
The differential diagnosis during the acute phase of illness should include measles, rubella, influenza, typhoid, leptospirosis, malaria, viral hemorrhagic fevers, and any other disease that may present in the acute phase as a nonspecific viral syndrome.
