Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0011311

NCI Thesaurus Code: C34528  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

NCIt Definition: An acute infection caused by Dengue virus. Signs and symptoms include sudden onset of fever, headache, rash, arthralgia, and myalgia. It is transmitted through mosquitoes.

MSH Definition: An acute febrile disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with DENGUE VIRUS. It is self-limiting and characterized by fever, myalgia, headache, and rash. SEVERE DENGUE is a more virulent form of dengue.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Dengue is an infection caused by a virus. You can get it if an infected mosquito bites you. Dengue does not spread from person to person. It is common in warm, wet areas of the world. Outbreaks occur in the rainy season. Dengue is rare in the United States.

Symptoms include a high fever, headaches, joint and muscle pain, vomiting, and a rash. In some cases, dengue turns into dengue hemorrhagic fever, which causes bleeding from your nose, gums, or under your skin. It can also become dengue shock syndrome, which causes massive bleeding and shock. These forms of dengue are life-threatening.

There is no specific treatment. Most people with dengue recover within 2 weeks. Until then, drinking lots of fluids, resting and taking non-aspirin fever-reducing medicines might help. People with the more severe forms of dengue usually need to go to the hospital and get fluids.

To lower your risk when traveling in dengue-prone countries

  • Wear insect repellent with DEET
  • Wear clothes that cover your arms, legs and feet
  • Close unscreened doors and windows

NIH: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

NICHD Definition: An infection that is caused by the dengue virus, which is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes, and which is characterized by sudden onset of fever, headache, rash, arthralgia, and myalgia. Occasionally, patients develop either dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), a more severe form of the disease that is characterized by plasma leakage due to increased vascular permeability, or dengue shock syndrome (DSS), which can cause circulatory collapse and possibly death.

CSP Definition: acute infectious, eruptive, febrile disease caused by four antigenically related but distinct serotypes of the dengue virus; transmitted by the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, especially A. aegypti; classical dengue (dengue fever) is self-limiting and characterized by fever, myalgia, headache, and rash; dengue hemorrhagic fever is a more virulent form of dengue virus infection.
