According to the WHO, the dengue virus is transmitted to humans through the female of Aedes mosquitoes.

Dengue fever is a severe, flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults, but seldom causes death. The clinical features vary according to the age of the patient. Infants and young children may have a non-specific febrile illness with rash.

The illness commonly begins with a sudden rise in temperature accompanied by facial flush.
