Resumen

TORRES-GALICIA, Ivonne; CORTES-POZA, David  y  BECKER, Ingeborg. Dengue in Mexico: Increase in the juvenile population during the last decade. Bol. Med. Hosp. Infant. Mex. [online]. 2014, vol.71, n.4, pp.196-201. ISSN 1665-1146.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.bmhimx.2014.08.003.

Dengue is one of the principal vector-transmitted diseases leading to important public health problems in Mexico and Latin America. On the American continent this disease has been reported mostly in adults, which contrasts with Asian countries where pediatric dengue is more prominent. During the last decade a shift towards pediatric dengue has been reported in various countries of the American continent. This review, elaborated from data published by the Mexican Ministry of Health, focuses on dengue in Mexico during the last three decades, showing that during the last decade dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever has begun to shift towards a juvenile and pediatric population.

Palabras llave : Dengue; Hemorrhagic dengue; Incidence; Young population; México.
