About this package
Chikungunya virus is transmitted to humans by infected Aedes mosquitoes. Infected patients typically have a sudden onset high fever, incapacitating joint pain, muscle pain, headache, exhaustion, and a maculopapular rash that lasts 3 to 10 days. Chikungunya IgM test measures levels of IgM antibody against the Chikungunya virus and helps in the diagnosis of chikungunya infection during the acute phase of the disease (more than 5 days after symptom onset). Since the clinical signs and symptoms of this infection are similar to those of many other infectious diseases, including Dengue fever, doctors suggest using specific laboratory testing techniques to confirm the infection. The presence of Chikungunya IgM indicates a current or recent infection. Book Thyrocare's Chikungunya - IgM Test at an inexpensive cost with the free home collection.

The Chikungunya IgM test is used for the detection of IgM antibodies against the Chikungunya virus. The presence of IgM antibodies against the virus indicates a recent infection.

Get checked if you suspect being infected with the Chikungunya virus or if any of the following symptoms appear: Fever, Headache, Rash, Muscle Ache, Joint Pain, Join Swelling

There is no special preparation required before getting this test. An intravenous blood sample is collected for this test.

You can locate our nearest collection center on google maps. You can also get this test in the comfort of your home. You can opt for our home collection services while booking this test.

Tests including Dengue, Malarial parasite, and Typhoid are used as a differential diagnosis of Chikungunya infection. Serological tests that detect IgG, IgM, or neutralizing antibodies molecular tests like RT-PCR (reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction) can also be performed.

You might feel a sting while the needle is inserted to draw blood. On rare occasions after blood collection, the site might become irritated, turn reddish, or swell.

Transmission of Chikungunya virus is through the bite of mosquitoes belonging to the genus Aedes infected with the virus. The infection can have in utero transmission (usually during the second trimester) or blood-borne transmission. A baby can be infected if the mother is viremic at the time of delivery

Older individuals and neonates/babies exposed to the virus during birth are at a higher risk of developing an infection as they have little or no immunity. People residing in rural areas or in areas with poor sanitation or unhygienic conditions lead to mosquito breeding. Heavy exposure to bites of mosquitoes infected with Chikungunya virus. Underlying medical conditions that lower/weaken your immune system

A positive result indicates recent infection with Chikungunya virus as IgM antibodies are generally the first to be developed and peak around 3 to 5 weeks after infection. IgM antibodies against the Chikungunya virus remain detectable for up to 2 months.
