Slide 34

May 2012

Finally, we discussed US outbreaks of dengue. An overall increase of dengue prevalence, and locally sustained infections have been attributed to travel, prevalence of mosquito populations, and a largely nonimmune population. Importantly, dengue should be considered as part of differential diagnosis in an acute febrile illness in travelers to tropical regions, or even residents in certain parts of the United States. For additional information consult http://www.cdc.gov/Dengue/.

This is an excellent resource that provides up to date information, and an interactive map which provides locations of recent outbreaks.
