  1. Fulltext. Epidemic dengue 4 in the Yucatan, México, 1984.

    Article - En anglais


    An outbreak of dengue 4 occurred in the Yucatan, México in 1984.

    During the course of the outbreak, 538 of 5486 reported cases of dengue-like illness were studied; 200 were confirmed as dengue serologically and/or virologically.

    Dengue 4 virus was isolated from 34 patients and dengue 1 from one.

    Severe haemorrhagic symptoms were observed in 9 laboratory confirmed patients, including four deaths.

    Thus, the outbreak in Yucatan is the second dengue epidemic in the Americas after the Cuban epidemic in 1981 in which a number of patients suffered from haemorrhagic complications.

    It was notable that 5 of 9 hospitalized, severe cases were young adults and that only one met the WHO criteria of DHF, in contrast to primary pediatric nature of DHF in Southeast Asia.
