Dengue virus (DENV) is the most prevailing arthropod borne pathogen. Its four serotypes are present in tropical regions. It affects about 50 to 100 million population annually. Infection proceeds into Dengue shock syndrome and Dengue hemophilic fever which are more dangerous than dengue fever. Diagnosis and treatment is needed to be done on time to lessen the harmful effects. In this review we will discuss viral structure, life cycle of Dengue virus, its diagnosis, and its prevention and about the recent advances on Dengue research.
