Mayaro virus (MAYV; genus Alphavirus, family Togaviridae) is an arbovirus transmitted primarily by the bite of female mosquitoes of the genus Hemagogus, usually from an infected non-human primate (monkeys) to a susceptible human.
Because Mayaro virus symptoms can resemble those of both chikungunya and dengue, it may be underdiagnosed.

Mayaro virus (MAYV), an exceptional arthralgic New World alphavirus, produces Mayaro fever, which has signs and symptoms similar to those of dengue fever, including an acute febrile illness of 3-5 days' duration, typically with headache, retro-orbital pain, arthralgia, myalgia, vomiting, diarrhea, and rashes (3,4).
