Dengue hemorrhagic fever is an acute infectious disease manifested initially with fever.


Aedes aegypti, the transmitter of the disease, is a day-biting mosquito which lays eggs in clear and stagnant water found in flower vases, cans, rain barrels, old rubber tires, etc. The adult mosquitoes rest in dark places of the house.


Dengue fever is caused by a virus that is spread by mosquitoes. There is no cure. Prevention is the key - through mosquito control and personal protection. Patients typically recover on their own. But occasionally the illness turns into dengue hemorrhagic fever or dengue shock syndrome, which can be fatal.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Skin rashes - maculopapular rash or red tiny spots on the skin called petechiae
