Resumen

PELAEZ, Otto et al. Prevalence of febrile syndrome in dengue surveillance.: Havana City, 2007. Rev Cubana Hig Epidemiol [online]. 2010, vol.48, n.1. ISSN 1561-3003.

Objective: To determine the prevalence of Febrile Syndromes and compare it with that of the clinical habitual and seroepidemiological Dengue surveillance system in Havana City. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in October 2007, on a representative sample, to calculate the prevalence rates of febrile syndromes and nonspecific febrile syndromes, using the Chi-square test in order to compare the differences among them. Results: The differences found among the point prevalence rates and the reported by the seroepidemiological clinical habitual surveillance system of Dengue, both for Febrile Syndromes and for Nonspecific Febrile Syndromes, turned out to be 352.6 and 144.2 times greater, statistically significant differences (p<0,001). Conclusions: The point prevalence of FS, found turned out to be much higher than the reported by the seroepidemiological clinical habitual surveillance system of Dengue, which shows underreporting in the report.
