The RNA virus of the Flaviviridae family, which causes the acute viral sickness known as dengue, is transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. Asymptomatic fever to terrifying consequences including hemorrhagic fever and shock may be the presenting symptoms. The most typical symptoms include acute-onset high fever, muscle and joint pain, myalgia, cutaneous rash, hemorrhagic episodes, and circulatory shock. Even though oral symptoms are rarely the main presenting symptom of dengue infection, this can happen in some situations. To reduce mortality, an early and precise diagnosis is essential. Despite the fact that dengue virus infections are normally self-limiting, dengue infection has become a public health concern in tropical and subtropical regions. Infections with the dengue virus, their various clinical symptoms, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and prevention are the important concern of this paper.
