Dengue fever is caused by a flavivirus, the family of viruses that includes yellow fever and West Nile virus, as well as Japanese and St. Louis encephalitis. It is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease in the Americas and has been linked to sporadic outbreaks in the United States since the 1700s. More recently, two additional arboviruses have increased their circulation —chikungunya virus in 2013 and Zika virus in 2014. The similarities in presentation of these illnesses has resulted in an increased need for knowledge among healthcare providers.


The goal of this dengue fever continuing education program is to inform nurses, pharmacists, and physicians about the incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of dengue fever, and its global effect and potential threat to the U.S. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the global effect of dengue fever
  • Describe the causative agent for dengue fever and its epidemiology
  • Identify symptoms and treatment of uncomplicated and complicated dengue infection
