More about dengue fever

There are 4 types of dengue virus, and infection with one type do not protect against the other types. You can therefore get dengue fever more than once.

In rare cases dengue can be complicated by reduced kidney function and a reduced ability of the blood to coagulate, so called “haemorrhagic” dengue. Haemorrhagic dengue is seen in about 0.2% of first time dengue infections and in about 2% of people who has had dengue before.
Travellers with dengue fever after return to their country of residence are probably just a small proportion of travellers experiencing dengue fever.

Dengue fever has been slowly spreading in the past decades, not least in the so-called “mega-cities”. One reason in that the mosquito transmitting dengue, thrives in urban surroundings.
