Signs and symptoms of Zika virus (ZIKV) infection are nonspecific and mimic other infections. Among them, dengue virus infection is the most serious and may be life-threatening. Other etiologies include chikungunya virus, yellow fever virus, parvovirus, enterovirus, Ross River virus, plasmodia (malaria), and rickettsia.
