Chikungunya virus is an arbovirus (alphavirus) transmitted by Aedes albopictus in Reunion Island. A huge chikungunya outbreak swept Reunion Island in 2005- 2006. We report the first case of chikungunya neonatal infection and the 5-years outcome of the 18 neonates hospitalized in neonatal intensive care unit between June 2005 and March 2006.
