Severe dengue virus infection in pediatric travelers visiting friends and relatives after travel to the Caribbean.Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2012 Mar; 86(3):474-6.AJ
Of eight children given a diagnosis of dengue, a complicated course developed in three (38%), including one infant with dengue shock syndrome. Children visiting friends and relatives in dengue-endemic regions are at risk for severe dengue-associated morbidity. Children of families originally from these locations may benefit from pre-travel advice and may represent candidates for a future dengue vaccine.
