NTD and NCD Co-morbidities: The Example of Dengue Fever

PLOS NTDs Co-Editor-in-Chief Peter J. Hotez and colleague find a paradoxically high endemicity of NTDs among populations living in the Group of 20 (G20) countries, possibly portending high rates of these diseases among patients with underlying non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Ultimately, it is of interest to determine whether unique co-morbidities arise as a result of such a clinical scenario.
