An infectious disease caused by any of the four serotypes of flavivirus *DEN+,,DEN+-,DEN+.,DEN+/0 which are spread by mos1uitoes in tropical and subtropical areas. #haracteri(ed by severe pain behind the eye and in the 2oints and bones and accompanied by an initial erythema and a terminal rash.

EPIDEMIO&O$' Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mos1uito&borne viral disease in the world. !n the last 9: years, incidence has increased .:&fold with increasing geographic e%pansion to new countries and in the present decade from urban to rural settings. An estimated 9: million dengue infections occur annually and appro%imately -.9 billion people live in dengue endemic countries. 3etween -::, and -::;, ,,:-:,... cases were reported in #ambodia, Malaysia, "hilippines and +ietnam& the four countries in the 7estern "acific <egion with the highest numbers of cases and deaths.
