Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether any diagnostic patterns exist in the symptom presentation of Zika Virus.

Description

The study has both retrospective and prospective components. The retrospective review includes medical records with laboratory confirmed Zika Virus diagnosis and the prospective component will enroll adults presenting with febrile illness and rash and ask them to complete a survey about their symptoms. Diagnostic testing will be completed to confirm infection source.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A viral disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with ZIKA VIRUS. Its mild DENGUE-like symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and ARTHRALGIA. The viral infection during pregnancy, however, may be associated with other neurological and autoimmune complications (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME; and MICROCEPHALY).

An arbovirus in the FLAVIVIRUS genus of the family FLAVIVIRIDAE. Originally isolated in the Zika Forest of UGANDA it has been introduced to Asia and the Americas.

A species of ALPHAVIRUS associated with epidemic EXANTHEMA and polyarthritis in Australia.

Diseases in which skin eruptions or rashes are a prominent manifestation. Classically, six such diseases were described with similar rashes; they were numbered in the order in which they were reported. Only the fourth (Duke's disease), fifth (ERYTHEMA INFECTIOSUM), and sixth (EXANTHEMA SUBITUM) numeric designations survive as occasional synonyms in current terminology.

An acute infection caused by the RIFT VALLEY FEVER VIRUS, an RNA arthropod-borne virus, affecting domestic animals and humans. In animals, symptoms include HEPATITIS; abortion (ABORTION, VETERINARY); and DEATH. In humans, symptoms range from those of a flu-like disease to hemorrhagic fever, ENCEPHALITIS, or BLINDNESS.
