Differentiating chikungunya from dengue: A clinical challenge
From Sept. 30:
In May of this year, a woman in her early 30s visited an outpatient clinic in Missouri, reporting a three-day history of fever, myalgia and arthralgia. She described recent travel to Haiti for a one-week missionary trip and indicated that her illness began three days after her return. Serologic diagnostic testing for dengue and chikungunya were requested, and the patient was prescribed bed rest and acetaminophen for pain.
