Dengue is one of the newest emerging diseases in Nepal with increasing burden and geographic spread over the years. The main objective of this study was to explore the epidemiological patterns of dengue since its first outbreak to in Nepal. Reported cases were plotted over time and maps of reported case incidence were generated from through An ecological analysis of environmental predictors of case incidence was conducted using negative binomial regression.

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever Nursing Care Management and Study Guide
Laboratory confirmation of Zika virus ZIKV infection during pregnancy is challenging due to cross-reactivity with dengue virus DENV and limited knowledge about the kinetics of anti-Zika antibody responses during pregnancy. We included 89 microcephaly cases and neonate controls at time of birth and their mothers. Microcephaly cases were defined as newborns with a particular head circumference 2 SD below the mean. Two controls without microcephaly were matched by the expected date of delivery and area of residence.
Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever
Metrics details. Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever incidence is increasing in Sri Lanka, especially among the young population. Uncommon presentations of this common illness make diagnostic dilemmas and can delay standard treatment which leads to unfavorable outcomes. An year-old Sri Lankan Sinhalese boy presented with a history of 1 day of fever and an episode of seizure followed by left-side hemiparesis. He was diagnosed to have dengue complicated by dengue hemorrhagic fever and recovered with minimal residual weakness.
A recent study has demonstrated that physical distancing measures resulted in a significant increase in reported cases of dengue in Thailand but unchanged rates in Malaysia and Singapore. These mosquitos mostly inhabit subtropical and tropical places worldwide, including some hot, humid parts of the United States. Approximately million individuals worldwide contract dengue each year. About 1 in 4 people develop a resulting illness, with 22, individuals dying from severe disease anually. In Southeast Asia, all four serotypes of the dengue virus are in active circulation, causing multiple outbreaks, which can be persistent, each year.
