In brief: Fever, pain, rash
Breakbone fever, also known as dengue fever, is a viral infection (mosquito transmitted) which classically causes fever and deep myalgias (muscle aches) so much so that it earns its nickname.
Deep pain can also be felt behind the eyes. Many patients also develop a faint red rash. Rarely, patients go on to develop dengue hemorrhagic fever (dhf), a more severe form which includes bleeding.

In brief: Many
"breakbone fever" usually applies to dengue fever, or chikungunya virus infection.
It may produce severe muscle pain, fever, profound malaise, chills in many, but also many patients have minimal subclinical disease. In patients who have repetitive infections they may get hemorrhagic fever with accompanying kidney failure and shock.
