Abstract: The Northern Territory of Australia (NT) is currently regarded as free of the vectors of dengue. The vector Aedes aegypti was present prior to the 1950s, but disappeared some time between 1956 and 1974, primarily as a result of the widespread reticulation of water during and soon after WorldWar II, and the coincidental removal of rainwater tanks. On 20 July 2010, a 34-year-old man presented to the public hospital in Darwin on the north coast of the NT with a one day history of rash and fever, retro-orbital headache, and prominent myalgia. He denied any travel outside the Northern Territory in the previous month.
