While we hear much in the news about Zika virus, dengue fever is another mosquito-transmitted infection that is quite common in in the tropics including the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America, the Asian Pacific countries, and Africa. International travelers from the US are at risk for the infection. The last dengue outbreak in South Texas was in 2005. Once the use of DDT was discontinued in the 1950’s, the occurrence of dengue increased, so that there are now 100 to 400 million cases a year world-wide with 22,000 of those infected dying. The onset of dengue fever occurs 4 to 7 days after a mosquito bite. Symptoms will last 3 to 7 days and can include fever, headache, abdominal pain with vomiting, muscle and bone pain, joint pain and stiffness, rash and bleeding from various sites. The bone pain can be so severe, the illness is also known as break-bone fever. Treatment for the infection is primarily supportive, as there are no specific medications to treat the virus. Key to preventing infection is the avoidance of mosquitos and the use of insect repellants. There is ongoing research to create safe vaccines to prevent dengue fever.
