Zika virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus discovered in Africa in 1947. Most persons with Zika virus infection are asymptomatic; symptoms when present are generally mild and include fever, maculopapular rash, arthralgia, and conjunctivitis. Since early 2015, Zika virus has spread rapidly through the Americas, with local transmission identified in 31 countries and territories as of February 29, 2016, including several US territories. All age groups are susceptible to Zika virus infection… 
An Update on the Transmission, Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention of Zika Virus Infection
TLDR
The current understanding about the transmission, pathogenesis, clinical features, and diagnosis of Zika virus infection is described.
Zika Virus Infection: A Vector-Borne Threat to Pregnant Women and Infants
TLDR
Although largely a self-limiting disease usually without symptoms, pregnant women and their fetuses are at greatest risk of ZIKV infection, and available evidence suggests that infection during the first trimester of pregnancy is associated with higher risk of brain abnormalities and perinatal loss.
Zika Virus Disease: Case Report and Review of Literature
TLDR
It is critical for physicians and other providers to know the growing list of countries and territories on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention list of nations with endemic ZIKV disease and to work closely with local health departments to prevent spread.
Clinical aspects of Zika virus
TLDR
The current ZIKV outbreak has illustrated the emergent capabilities of mosquito-borne viruses and the teratogenic nature of ZIKVs, and infants have been uniquely impacted by the current outbreak with significant congenital exposure resulting in permanent neurological defects and developmental complications.
Zika virus infection: epidemiology, clinical manifestations and diagnosis
TLDR
The findings illustrate the emergence of a viral disease with the identification of new associated disorders, new modes of transmission, including maternal–foetal and sexual transmission.
Understanding Zika virus

  • Medicine
    Journal for specialists in pediatric nursing : JSPN
  • 2017
TLDR
An infectious threat that was relatively obscure just a few months ago has now become a topic of heightened interest worldwide and Pediatric healthcare professionals must remain cognizant of evolving developments and emerging new evidence.
Zika Virus Disease Comparing Children and Adults in a Dengue-Endemic Setting
TLDR
In dengue-endemic settings, rash and fever in children, and rash, arthralgia, and conjunctivitis in adults, particularly if rash persists for ≥ 3 days, plus negative denge NS1 Ag during early febrile phase should prompt ZIKV diagnostic testing.
Clinical Impact of Non-Congenital Zika Virus Infection in Infants and Children

    Current Infectious Disease Reports
  • 2017
TLDR
Most symptomatic non-congenital ZIKV infection in infants and children is mild and self-limited, but long-term follow-up studies are lacking, and the mechanism and impact of perinatal and breast milk transmission is unclear.
Zika Virus, Congenital Infection, and Neurologic Manifestations in Children: A Narrative Review
Context: Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arbovirus of the family Flaviviridae. This virus, which is transmitted by mosquitoes, usually affects children and causes self-limited diseases, associated with
The global threat of Zika virus to pregnancy: epidemiology, clinical perspectives, mechanisms, and impact
TLDR
The causal link between ZikV infection during pregnancy and microcephaly is now strongly supported and the need for a rapid global public health and research response to ZIKV to limit and prevent its impact through the development of therapeutics, vaccines, and improved diagnostics is highlighted.

Notes from the Field: Evidence of Zika Virus Infection in Brain and Placental Tissues from Two Congenitally Infected Newborns and Two Fetal Losses--Brazil, 2015.
TLDR
A surge in the number of children born with microcephaly was noted in regions of Brazil with a high prevalence of suspected Zika virus disease cases, and the Brazil Ministry of Health established a task force to further investigate possible connections between the virus and brain anomalies in infants.
Interim Guidelines for Prevention of Sexual Transmission of Zika Virus - United States, 2016.
TLDR
People residing in or traveling to areas of active Zika virus transmission should take steps to prevent Zika virus infection through prevention of mosquito bites, and no vaccine or medication exists to prevent or treat Zika virus infections.
Zika Virus Infection, Cambodia, 2010
TLDR
This result was the first nondengue, non–Japanese encephalitis virus flavivirus detected after samples from ≈10,000 enrolled patients were tested and demonstrated that the patient had a clear monotypic flaviv virus immune response with seroconversion against ZIKV, indicating a recent primary infection.

TLDR
Pregnant women in Zika virus-affected areas should protect themselves from mosquito bites by using air conditioning, screens, or nets when indoors, wearing long sleeves and pants, using permethrin-treated clothing and gear, and using insect repellents when outdoors.
Zika virus outbreak on Yap Island, Federated States of Micronesia.
TLDR
This outbreak of Zika virus illness in Micronesia represents transmission of Zikairus outside Africa and Asia and clinicians and public health officials should be aware of the risk of further expansion of Zika viruses transmission.
