Abstract

We describe the spread of a dengue virus during an outbreak in Saint Martin island (French West Indies) during winter 2003-2004. Dengue type 3 viruses were isolated from 6 patients exhibiting clinical symptoms. This serotype had not been detected on the island during the preceding 3 years. Genome sequence determinations and analyses showed a common origin with dengue type 3 viruses isolated in Martinique 2 years earlier.
