MIAMI (AP) - Health officials confirmed a case of dengue fever in Miami-Dade County.

The Miami-Dade Health Department's chief epidemiologist says the county hasn't had a locally acquired case since the 1950s.

The person diagnosed with Dengue Fever is described as a man who had not traveled outside the county for more than two weeks. The man was briefly hospitalized but has fully recovered.

Health officials said they don't know where the man got the disease. It was a different strain from the one that has caused locally acquired cases in Key West and one in Broward County.
