Abstract:

Implication of the mosquito in the transmission of lymphatic filariasis and malaria probably laid the foundation for the pioneering contributions to understanding the cause of yellow fever. Mosquitoes were involved in transmitting the disease. It was Carlos Finlay (1833-1915) who indicated categorically that mosquitoes were involved in the person-to-person transmission of yellow fever. After graduation at Philadelphia, Finlay took up practice in Havana and in 1881 delivered a lecture on the role of the A. aegypti mosquito in transmission to the International Sanitary Commission at Washington. Finlay backed up his hypothesis with a great deal of clinical observation, which virtually clinched the role of A. aegypti in transmission.
