Abstract

There have been dramatic increases in dengue fever (DF) and dengue haemorrhagic fever in South America. Guyana has reported less than five cases per year for most of the past decade. We evaluated patients in a clinic in Georgetown, Guyana, over 2 days and found evidence of 50 cases of dengue infection.
