Now a days, many people suffer from dengue. Dengue fever is an infectious disease carried by mosquitoes and caused by any of four related dengue viruses. This disease used to be called break-bone fever because it sometimes causes severe joint and muscle pain. Health experts have known about dengue fever for more than 200 years.
Dengue or dengue-like epidemics were reported throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the Americans, southern Europe, North Africa, the eastern Mediterranean, Asia and Australia and on various islands in the Indian Ocean, the south and central Pacific and the Carribbean. It has steadily increased in both incidence and distribution over the past 40 years. Annually, it is estimated that there are 20 million cases of dengue infection, resulting in around 24,000 deaths.
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, predominately in urban and peri-urban areas. Dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF), a potentially lethal complication, was first recognized during the 1950s and is today a leading cause of childhood mortality in several Asian countries. There are four distinct, but closely related, viruses which 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. Indeed, there is good evidence that sequential infection increases the risk of more serious disease resulting in DHF.
Dengue virus infection can cause a wide spectrum of illness. Thrombocytopenia with concurrent haemoconcentration differentiates dengue haemorrhagic fever from classical dengue fever. Only cases with shock or unstable vitals signs need admission in the pediatric...
