Objective. To assess the compliance of the diagnosis and reporting from the Chikungunya cases in Ocaña, Colombia. Methods. Descriptive and retrospective study. 137 medical records of Chikungunya were reviewed, as well as their notification records from the epidemiologic vigilance system "SIVIGILA", between September 2014 and June 2015.

The quality of the diagnosis of the Chikungunya virus in Ocaña is deficient in terms of the compliance from the quality markers established for the diagnostic process as well as for the event reporting.
