    Maybe if you could give us some idea of where he contracted it we would have a better shot at it?

    Dengue fever is what I think it is--try "google-ing" that, see if it fits. Center for Disease Control site would have info on it also.

    Dengue fever is still alive and well on this side of the world. Actually, several of my students have had it in the past.
