In the last several years, there has been an interesting turn of events in that we have had several self-sustaining epidemics of dengue fever in the continental United States.

In the fall of 2009, a 34-year-old female from Rochester, NY diagnosed with dengue had just returned from 1 week in Key West, Florida on day of illness onset. Shortly thereafter, a 48-year-old male resident from Key West was also diagnosed with dengue, however, he had no history of travel. Key West is 396 miles from Jacksonville, Florida as the mosquito flies.
