Dengue Virus PCR

About this test

Dengue fever is an infectious disease carried by mosquitoes and caused by any of four related dengue viruses.

Dengue fever is found mostly during and shortly after the rainy season in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, China, India, Middle East, Caribbean, Central and South America, Australia and the South and Central Pacific.

Symptoms of dengue fever usually start within 4 to 7 days after you have been bitten by an infected mosquito and include a high fever up to 105ºF, severe headache, retro-orbital (behind the eye) pain, severe joint and muscle pain, nausea and vomiting and a rash.

The rash may appear over most of your body 3 to 4 days after the fever begins, and then subsides after 1 to 2 days. You may get a second rash a few days later.
