Doctors for Yellow Fever in Mallige Nagar, Hubli-Dharwad
ratings and reviews)
Yellow fever is a serious, potentially deadly flu-like disease spread by mosquitoes. Characterized by a high fever and jaundice, it is most prevalent in certain parts of Africa and South America. The disease is not curable, but is preventable with the yellow fever vaccine. Symptoms typically improve within five days. In some people within a day of improving, the fever comes back, abdominal pain occurs, and liver damage begins causing yellow skin. If this occurs, the risk of bleeding and kidney problems is also increased
HOW IS YELLOW FEVER DIAGNOSED?
Yellow fever is most frequently a clinical diagnosis, made on the basis of symptoms and the diseased person's whereabouts prior to becoming ill. Mild courses of the disease can only be confirmed virologically. Liver biopsy can verify inflammation and necrosis of hepatocytes and detect viral antigens. Because of the bleeding tendency of yellow fever patients, a biopsy is only advisable post mortem to confirm the cause of death. In a differential diagnosis, infections with yellow fever must be distinguished from other feverish illnesses like malaria.
HOW IS YELLOW FEVER TREATED?
Good and early supportive treatment in hospitals improves survival rates. There is currently no specific antiviral drug for yellow fever but specific care to treat dehydration, liver and kidney failure, and fever improves outcomes. Associated bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics.
DID YOU KNOW?
Avoid Acetylsalicylic acid, which is aspirin as it can have some adverse effects.
