GUZMAN, MARIA G et al. Relaciones genéticas del virus dengue 3 aislado en la epidemia de FHD en Nicaragua, 1994. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 1996, vol.48, n.2, pp. 114-117. ISSN 1561-3054.
It is reported the isolation of 2 dengue strains, 3 in samples from Nicaraguan patients suffering from dengue with hemorrhagic manifestations, which showed the reintroduction of this serotype in the region after being 17 years out of circulation. It is also reported the genetic characterization of the isolated strain, which, according to its classification, belongs to the group of dengue 2 strains isolated in Southeast Asi and which have been associated to hemorrhagic dengue. These results suggest the origin of this strain.
