• A series of 24 confirmed cases of zika virus infection in travelers is described.
• Molecular detection of zika virus in serum and urine samples revealed positive samples outside the considered optimal time for testing.
• Testing of paired serum and urine samples is recommended for optimal molecular detection.
Zika virus is an emerging flavivirus widely spreading through Latin America. Molecular diagnosis of the infection can be performed using serum, urine and saliva samples, although a well-defined diagnostic algorithm is not yet established. We describe a series of 24 cases of imported zika virus infection into Catalonia (northeastern Spain). Based on our findings, testing of paired serum and urine samples is recommended.
