Overview

Chikungunya and Dengue are among the most difficult diseases to distinguish, especially because
simultaneous co-infection can occur. The disease shares some clinical signs with dengue, and can be misdiagnosed in areas where dengue is common. Hence the number of cases of Chikungunya fever is much higher than that reported. Chikungunya fever has similar symptoms but requires different management than dengue.

Early detection is important in order to stop further transmission and case management is necessary to prevent severe development of the disease.
