Coinfection with dengue and chikungunya--a case report

Dengue fever outbreaks are reported from India since last 10 years. Since 2005, chikungunya is also causing massive outbreaks in India and other parts of Asia. Both viruses are transmitted by aedes genus and both viruses can re-emerge in many regions due to climatic changes. The clinical presentation of both arthropod borne diseases are similar. Here a concomitant infection of chikungunya and dengue is reported in an 8-year-old child.
