Dengue is an infectious disease of viral cause, which usually presents as a febrile illness called dengue fever. is characterized by an acute febrile illness of limited duration (2-7 days), with intense malaise (headache, retro-ocular pain, muscle aches and joint pain), accompanied by a rash. bleeding may have symptoms of low intensity, such as petechiae, epistaxis and gingival bleeding. such treatment is symptomatic and the patient improved completely after about 7 days. This form of dengue is benign and does not produce death 80% of people who are infected with dengue will be asymptomatic, undifferentiated fever 10% and 5% with or without fever, dengue haemorrhagic manifestations. dengue hemorrhagic fever, less frequent (5% of clinical cases), includes symptoms of dengue fever, the hemorrhagic manifestations that are added to increase vascular permeability and abnormal clotting mechanisms. the main risk factor for the occurrence of this type of dengue is having had a previous infection by another serotype of dengue, but also influence the geographical origin of the viral strain and host susceptibility. the dengue shock syndrome includes more serious picture of DHF plus signs of shock: weak or rapid pulse, decreased pulse pressure, hypotension, clammy skin and general unrest. so the disease begins suddenly with fever, and in children with mild symptoms of upper respiratory tract, often with anorexia, flushing and mild disturbances in the gastrointestinal tract. the patient's condition suddenly deteriorated with signs of profound weakness, severe restlessness, profuse sweating and abdominal pain. DHF is the severe form of the disease and produce shock and death if not adequately and timely question.

How is it transmitted? Dengue is transmitted by the bite of female mosquito Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus lesser extent, that must be infected with the virus. the mosquito is a carrier, and therefore infective after 8-12 days of being fed with blood from an infected person remains infectious virus and the rest of his life. sick people can infect mosquitoes from shortly before the end of the febrile period, averaging three to five days. the disease is not transmitted from person to person.

How is it transmitted? when the mosquito feeds on blood from a person sick with dengue and then bites other healthy people, they spread the disease. types of dengue There are four dengue virus serotypes: 1,2,3 and 4. the first time a person is infected by any of these four virus acquires the dengue fever. dengue will never suffer the same virus, but remains exposed to the other serotypes. if the person returns to be bitten by a mosquito carrying one of the three remaining virus, dengue hemorrhagic fever may occur. symptoms of dengue fever sudden high fever, sore muscles, joints, bones, head and eyes, rusty taste. some patients show: • rash on the trunk, arms and legs • bleeding gums • there is often vomiting and diarrhea

How to combat dengue? to prevent dengue is necessary to eliminate mosquito breeding sites. the main risk factor for the occurrence of this type of dengue is having had a previous infection by another serotype of dengue. • bury all kinds of garbage: shells. health of people is individual responsibility and community. muscle aches and joint pain). often with anorexia. dengue hemorrhagic fever. workplace. epistaxis and gingival bleeding. tanks. but also influence the geographical origin of the viral strain and host susceptibility. includes symptoms of dengue fever. sweating and sleep. fences and cement walls. • replace with soil or sand water in vases and pots of home. accompanied by a rash. This form of dengue is benign and does not produce death 80% of people who are infected with dengue will be asymptomatic. retro-ocular pain. with intense malaise (headache. so you should do the following: • keep tightly covered all containers where water is stored for domestic use. sewage disused and abandoned latrines. undifferentiated fever 10% and 5% with or without fever. clammy skin and general unrest.these symptoms are beginning to experience between 5 and 8 days after the bite and may last 3-7 days . being exposed to dengue hemorrhagic fever. DHF is the severe form of the disease and produce shock and death if not adequately and timely question. flushing and mild disturbances in the gastrointestinal tract. • backfill soil disused septic tanks. dengue haemorrhagic manifestations. building blocks and other objects. is characterized by an acute febrile illness of limited duration (2-7 days). profuse sweating and abdominal pain. • drill holes in the tires of the playground so it does not hold water. hypotension. • Eliminate standing water from containers. which usually presents as a febrile illness called dengue fever. less frequent (5% of clinical cases). . decreased pulse pressure. Symptoms of dengue hemorrhagic • sudden high fever that may last from 2 to 7 days • bleeding in various body parts of the body • difficulty in breathing • vomiting • pressure changes • lack of appetite • pale. study centers and cements. the dengue shock syndrome includes more serious picture of DHF plus signs of shock: weak or rapid pulse.. What is dengue? Dengue is an infectious disease of viral cause. the hemorrhagic manifestations that are added to increase vascular permeability and abnormal clotting mechanisms. the patient's condition suddenly deteriorated with signs of profound weakness. tires or other objects that can store water. pools. bleeding may have symptoms of low intensity. such treatment is symptomatic and the patient improved completely after about 7 days. and in children with mild symptoms of upper respiratory tract. severe restlessness. such as petechiae. • fill in holes in trees. so the disease begins suddenly with fever. if everyone makes this commitment we will get rid of dengue. Some people have symptoms so mild they do not know that already suffered dengue fever.
