Scope note: Enfermedad viral transmitida por la picadura de mosquitos AEDES infectados por el VIRUS DEL ZIKA. Sus síntomas leves, similares a los del DENGUE, incluyen fiebre, exantema, cefalea y ARTRALGIA. La infección viral durante el embarazo, en casos raros, se asocia a anomalías congénitas oculares y encefálicas (como MICROCEFALIA), lo que se conoce como síndrome congénito por el virus del Zika, y también pueden dar lugar a un SÍNDROME DE GUILLAIN-BARRÉ.

Scope note: A viral disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with ZIKA VIRUS. Its mild DENGUE-like symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and ARTHRALGIA. The viral infection during pregnancy, in rare cases, is associated with congenital brain and ocular abnormalities, called Congenital Zika Syndrome, including MICROCEPHALY and may also lead to GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME.
