Resumen

OLEA M., PILAR. The first case of autochthonous Dengue disease admitted at the Lucio Cordova Infectious Diseases Hospital. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2003, vol.20, n.2, pp.129-132. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182003000200008.

We present the case of a 50 year old male patient with dengue acquired at Easter Island in the summer of 2002. This occurred in the context of the epidemic of this disease, that started on the island in February 2002. The patient had a mild illness and the diagnosis was made by serology (IgM) done by the Reference Laboratory at the Public Health Institute. This patient was the second with a diagnosis of autochthonous dengue and the first to be admitted to a Public Health Service Hospital in Santiago. We briefly review the clinical features and the laboratory tests that contribute to the diagnosis.
