RESULTS: this outbreak gave rise to 38 serologically confirmed cases as well as other 16 cases in other health areas. The implementation of rapid and effective actions as part of the anti-vector fight, the organized detection and management of cases as well as the community and central state bodies involvement made it possible to eradicate this outbreak in 45 days. CONCLUSIONS: the experiences accumulated in the anti-vector fight and the early use of residual action pesticide treatments were key elements for the control of this dengue outbreak.
