What is dengue fever?

This is caused by the dengue virus, carried by infected Aedes mosquitoes. There are 4 subtypes of dengue virus. Infections are more severe among immunocompromised people, the elderly, and young children. If a person is infected for a second time, this can be associated with more severe disease, because the antibodies produced from the first infection can cross-react with the new virus. Severe forms of dengue fever can be fatal.
