    Background Reinvasion by Aedes aegypti of cities in the Americas poses a threat of urbanisation of yellow fever.

    Findings Between December, 1997, and June, 1998, symptomatic yellow-fever infection was confirmed in six residents of Santa Cruz, five of whom died.

    Five lived in the southern sector of the city.

    Two had not left the city during the incubation period, and one had visited only an area in which sylvatic transmission was deemed impossible.

    Of the 281 people covered in the serosurvey 16 (6%) were positive for IgM antibody to yellow fever.
