A highly contagious and viral disease, Yellow Fever is categorized with high fever, chills in different parts of the body, pain in the abdominal area and also yellow skin.

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.

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.
