Abstract

Chikungunya fever has been increasingly documented among Western travelers returning from areas with chikungunya virus transmission, which are also popular touristic sites. We describe the case of three Israeli travelers who developed fever, maculopapular rash, and long-standing arthralgias while visiting northern Indian states not known to be involved in the chikungunya fever epidemic.
