Today, dengue is considered one of the most important arthropod-borne viral diseasases in humans in term of morbidity and mortality. Dengue infection a potential life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) / dengue shock syndrome(DSS), characterized by thrombocytopenia and increased vascular permiability.
