Abstract

Dengue is the most important and widely distributed arthropod-borne viral disease affecting humans. The number of dengue virus infections has steadily grown and more than 100 countries survey dengue incidence every year. Due to the lack of an approved antiviral treatment or licensed preventative vaccine, accurate and opportune diagnosis is commended for efficient dengue epidemiological surveillance, to propose control measures in order to curtail outbreaks timely and treat patients satisfactorily. In this review, the basis, application and indications for different diagnostic tests are described, and their advantages and limitations considered. At the end of this piece, we speculate what the future may hold for the diagnosis of dengue infections.
