Since remote times as early as 1635 and 1699, dengue has been considered as the most important mosquito-borne viral disease. Given the significance of this disease worldwide, particularly in the Americas, it was necessary to look for an immediate solution to hinder the development of the most serious dengue variant. This study covered a review about some important aspects like clinical spectrum of the disease, the characteristics of the etiologic agent, and the immunopathogenic mechanisms that interact with the host.
