dc.description.abstractBackground:Arboviruses are one of the most common causes of acute febrile illness and an emerging health problem in South America. In Peru, the number of Dengue cases have double in the last year; however, less than 50% of acute febrile illnessare laboratory confirmed leading to an underdiagnoses of other important arboviruses. Aim:To assess the frequency of Dengue (DENV), Oropuche (OROV), Chikungunya (CHIKV), Mayaro (MAYV) and Zika ZIKV) in patients with acute febrile illness from Puerto Maldonado, Peru. Methodology: Samples were obtained from patients with acute febrile illness during January 2016 to March 2016.A total of 139 specimens were collected and assessed for the presence of DENV, OROV, CHIKV, MAYV and ZIKV via RT-PCR. Results: CHIKV in 9.35% (13/139) and OROV in 8.63% (12/139) were the most prevalent arboviruses, followed by DENV (6.47%) and ZIKV (5.04%). Among all patients, the most common symptoms accompanying fever were: Headache 79.86% (111/139), Muscle pain 65.47% (91/139) and Joint pain 63.31% (88/139). Conclusions: CHIKV and OROV were the most common arboviruses in our study. To enhance arbovirus surveillance is crucial to understand the role of these pathogens in Peru. PCR represents a reliable test for arboviral surveillance and should be considered as the preferred method for laboratory confirmation in Peru.

html.description.abstractAntecedentes:La infección por arbovirus es una de las causas más comunes de síndrome febril agudo y un problema de salud emergente en América del Sur. En el Perú, el número de casos de dengue se ha duplicado en el último año; sin embargo, menos del 50% de los síndromes febriles agudos fueron confirmados por laboratorio, lo que conduce a un diagnóstico limitado de otros arbovirus importantes. Objetivo:Evaluar la frecuencia de Dengue (DENV), Oropuche (OROV), Chikungunya (CHIKV), Mayaro (MAYV) and Zika ZIKV) en pacientes con síndrome febril agudo de Puerto Maldonado, Perú. Metodología:Se obtuvieron muestras de pacientes con síndrome febril agudo entre enero de 2016 y marzo de 2016. Se recolectaron un total de 139 especímenes y se evaluó la presencia de DENV, OROV, CHIKV, MAYV y ZIKV con la técnica de RT-PCR. Resultados: Los arbovirus de mayor frecuencia fueron CHIKV 9.35% (13/139) y OROV 8.63% (12/139), seguidos de DENV (6.47%) y ZIKV (5.04%). Entre todos los pacientes, los síntomas más comunes que acompañaron la fiebre fueron: Cefalea 79.86% (111/139), mialgias 65.47% (91/139) y artralgias 63.31% (88/139). Conclusiones:CHIKV y OROV fueron los arbovirus más frecuentes en nuestro estudio. Es crucial mejorar la vigilancia de los arbovirus para poder entender el papel de estos patógenos en el Perú. La PCR representa una prueba confiable para la vigilancia de arbovirus y debe ser considerada como el método más adecuado para la confirmación por laboratorio en el Perú.
