A serious infectious disease caused by a virus carried by Aedes aegyptii mosquitoes and most often found in hot climates. Symptoms include rash, fever, headaches, and severe muscle and joint pain. The pain is so severe; its nickname is "breakbone fever."
An infectious virus transmitted by mosquitoes in the American tropics. Produces headache, severe joint pain, and rash. Also called breakbone fever. (American Spanish )
an infectious disease of the tropics transmitted by mosquitoes and characterized by rash and aching head and joints
an infectious fever with severe pain in the head, joints, and muscles and usually a skin rash; caused by a virus transmitted by mosquitoes from the genus Aedes.
a virus transmitted from the bite of the Aedes mosquito. Symptoms include headaches, fever, joint pain, and a rash. The disease can be fatal if the patient goes into shock. Dengue fever occurs in most tropical areas, more recently in Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas. The peak feeding activity of this mosquito is after daybreak and in the late afternoon. Wearing protective clothing that covers most of the body, arms and legs, and using insect repellent with the chemical DEET, are ways to prevent the disease. Prevention and control can be accomplished through mosquito control. Eradication of the mosquito with insecticides are the best preventative measures.
A disease caused by an arbovirus transmitted by the bites of the Aedes aegypti and A. albopictus (Asian Tiger) mosquito and also known as 'break-bone fever". It is second only to malaria among the insect-borne diseases.
Flu like illness spread by the bite of an infected mosquito.
an infectious viral disease spread by mosquitoes, the first infection of which is often called breakbone fever and is characterized by severe pain in joints and back, fever, and rash; a subsequent infection is usually characterized by fever, bleeding from bodily orifices, and sometimes death
a viral disease transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes mainly in tropical and subtropical areas of the world.
Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are acute febrile diseases, found in the tropics, with a geographical spread similar to malaria. Caused by one of four closely related virus serotypes of the genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae, each serotype is sufficiently different that there is no cross-protection and epidemics caused by multiple serotypes (hyperendemicity) can occur. Dengue is transmitted to humans by the mosquito Aedes aegypti (rarely Aedes albopictus).
Dengue Fever is a six-member band from Los Angeles who combine Cambodian pop music and lyrics with psychedelic rock. They were formed in 2001 by Ethan Holtzman and his brother Zac after Ethan was inspired by a trip to Cambodia. Lead singer Chhom Nimol was discovered performing at a night club in the Little Phnom Penh area of Long Beach as Ethan and Zac were searching for a vocalist to sing in Khmer.
