||Dengue is a viral disease characterized by high bouts of fever accompanied by tremors, frontal headache, myalgia and intense musculoskeletal pain in the upper and lower extremities. It may be fatal. The objective of this feature article is to discuss the risks of importing into France the mosquito vector of the disease (Aedes), to alert the enterprises at risk by way of their occupational physician and to propose preventive measures. Contents: sectors of activity concerned by the disease (direct exposure to goods imported by sea from Asia and Africa, in particular used tyres and plant seedlings); evaluation and characterization of the hazard (description of the disease and its vectors); prevention within the enterprise (current sanitary regulations, storage, disinfection); specific problems faced by French overseas territories.
