Zika virus (ZIKV) is a recently rising relative of the Flaviviridae family and associated to dengue (DENV) and Chikungunya (CHIVKV). ZIKV infection was distinguished by mild disease with fever, headache, rash, arthralgia and conjunctivitis, with unprecedented association with Guillain–Barre Syndrome (GBS) and microcephaly. Nevertheless, since the end of 2015, a rise in the number of GBS related cases and an astonishing number of microcephaly in fetus and neonates in Brazil have been related to ZIKV infection, raising consequential global public health concerns. ZIKV is spread by the bite of infected female mosquitoes of Aedes species. A substantial illustration of the actual understanding of the effects of ZIKV on heath, clinical manifestation, and diagnosis and treatment options based on modern, alternative and complementary system of medicines regarding the disease will enable the health care organization for drafting and communicating policies and procedures to control the spread of this virus.
