Abstract

Dengue fever is caused by the dengue virus which belongs to the flaviviridae family and is transmitted by mosquitos. It occurs in the tropical climates of central and south america, asia, and africa and is considered one of the most important arthropod-borne viral diseases as regards morbidity and mortality, especially due to its hemorrhagic forms, dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome. We report a case of dengue fever which presented with typical systemic symptoms and signs such as fever, headache, nausea and characteristic erythroderma (white islands in a sea of red) on travelling Bangladesh.
