A Collaborative Educational Event Presented by AMP, PASCV and APHL
Zika in Latin America: Clinical Aspects by Dr. Cecilia Perret
Dr. Perret reviews the epidemiology of the Zika outbreak in Latin America, some clinical aspects, evidence of a Zika infection, and its complications (congenital disease and Guillain Barre Syndrome). In addition, she will discuss the local response to a series of travelers infected with Zika, including a pregnant woman and a sexually transmitted infection.
Zika virus (ZIKV) is an Aedes mosquito-borne flavivirus that emerged in Brazil in 2015 and then rapidly spread throughout the tropical and subtropical Americas. Based on clinical criteria alone, ZIKV cannot be reliably distinguished from infections with other pathogens that cause an undifferentiated systemic febrile illness, including infections with two common arboviruses, dengue virus and chikungunya virus. This presentation details the methods that are available to diagnose ZIKV infection.
