Dengue has been recognized as the most frequent arboviral infection in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, with an estimated 390 million people infected each year, and 100 million developing illness. The disease is spreading to new areas including Europe. Autochthonous cases are now observed on an almost annual basis in many European countries, with the risk of local outbreaks where the mosquito vector exists. Among ill travellers returning from some regions, eg South-East Asia, the Caribbean etc. dengue is the most diagnosed cause of fever. With global warming and increased urbanization, dengue will continue to pose a threat to endemic populations as well as travellers.
