what is chicken gunia what are symptoms?

Dileep J
It is not chicken gunia, it is chikungunia. Nothing to do with poultry. It is a disease which spreads through mosquito bites. The symptoms are severe pain in the joints, fever etc.It is too painful to move about. There is no definite cure for it yet. Doctors treat it by giving medicines for joint pains and for fever. the severity of the disease lessens in a week or so. The effects remain sometimes even after 3-4 months; some pain in the joints etc.



It is not chicken gunia but CHIKUNGUNYA. It is caused by virus that is transmitted by bite of a mosquito.

Chikungunya Virus, also known as Buggy Creek Virus, is transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquito bites. The virus belongs to the Family -Togoviridae, and the Genus is Alpha virus. Till date there has been no reported direct person-to-person spread.

The mosquitoes that cause infection due to the Chikungunya virus in Africa and Asia are the same mosquitoes that cause yellow fever and dengue fever in many parts of the world. Hence many parts of the world could be affected by the Chikungunya virus.

Genetic analysis of the Chiungunya viruses reveal that there are two distinct types of the virus - one contains all isolates from western Africa and the second comprising all southern and East African strains, as well as isolates from Asia.

Fever (> 40 C, 104 F)


Joint pain (or arthralgia)

Arthritis affecting multiple joints that can be debilitating.

Swelling of Joints

Rash (May occur rarely)

Sometimes there maybe infection of the conjunctiva of the eye and some photophobia.




Bleeding or hemorrhage (May occur rarely).

In one study over 12% of patients who contract Chikungunya virus infection develop chronic joint symptoms.
