Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever is a viral disease transmitted between humans by a mosquito. It causes an inflammation of the liver, fever, a brief remission, then a recurrence of fever, kidney failure, shock and internal bleeding.

Yellow Fever occurs primarily in the tropics. In South America infections occur among forestry and agricultural workers who are exposed in or near rain forests. Symptoms primarily occur three to six days after infection with the virus.
