In brief: Yellow fever

Yellow fever is caused by a small virus that is spread by the bite of mosquitoes.
There is no specific treatment for yellow fever. Treatment for symptoms can include: blood products for severe bleeding; dialysis for kidney failure; fluids through a vein (intravenous fluids). See: http://health.Nytimes.Com/health/guides/disease/yellow-fever/overview.Html.
