Abstract

In July 2018, a Japanese traveler returning from Saudi Arabia was diagnosed with dengue. The dengue virus type 2 gene was detected from a whole blood sample. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that the strain was clustered with isolates from Singapore and India. Travelers to Saudi Arabia should be cautious about mosquito bites.
