Arboviruses are infections transmitted through bites from mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects. Types of arboviruses include West Nile virus, Zika virus, and dengue fever. Arboviruses can cause serious complications, such as encephalitis (brain swelling and inflammation). Infectious disease physicians help identify arboviruses and ensure you receive the care you need to reduce short- and long-term effects.
Because arboviruses are not caused by bacteria, antibiotics do not help treat these conditions. Physicians work to support you while your body fights the virus.
