dengue thrombocytopenia

Ganesh Veerasekar, Krishnan Swaminathan
BACKGROUND: Using technology to track endemic areas of communicable diseases is possible nowadays. Effectual use of such facilities, especially in developing countries, will increase earlier detection of cases as well as aid in the formulation of effective prevention strategies. METHODS: A retrospective data analysis was carried out by collecting the details of patients presented with positive dengue serology, during the outbreak season in the second half of 2012, at Kovai Medical Center and Hospital, Coimbatore, India...

In Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), hemorrhagic manifestations are common but thrombotic events are uncommonly reported, despite the wide range of increased procoagulant activity during Dengue Fever illness. We report a case of a 55-year-old man of Asian Indian ethnicity who developed large vein thrombotic event -Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) in the acute phase of DHF. His condition was further complicated by associated thrombocytopenia. The etiological connections between dengue viral infection with thrombocytopenia, DVT/PE and abnormal thrombophilia profile as well as the treatment dilemmas posed in treating a patient of DF with hemorrhagic manifestations and associated DVT/PE, and the role of eltrombopag are discussed...

OBJECTIVE: This comparative cross sectional study was conducted in a teaching hospital in Mumbai during the monsoon of 2014.A significant number of dengue and malaria co-infection cases, along with dengue, malaria and other infective causes of acute febrile illnesses were noted. The objective of the present study was to understand the interplay of both infections. Since the first such reported case in 2005, studies and data on such cases are scarce, hence this study. AIM: To compare the clinical course, laboratory features, severity and outcome of coinfection with monoinfection of malaria and dengue...

: We investigated 10 mother-newborn pairs and found a 90% rate of dengue virus (DENV) transmission during the perinatal period. Here, we describe DENV kinetics in the sera of newborns before the onset of disease. Of the breast-milk samples analyzed, 75% tested positive for DENV. BACKGROUND: Dengue is the most common mosquito-borne viral disease in humans. With this study, we aimed to investigate the risk of vertical (DENV) transmission during the peripartum period and to describe its viral kinetics in serum and breast milk...

OBJECTIVE: Thrombocytopenia in dengue fever is a common and serious complication. However, no specific treatment is available for dengue fever induced thrombocytopenia. In few countries (Pakistan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and other Asian countries) the leaf extract of Carica papaya has been effectively used for thrombocytopenia. So, the study is planned to access effect of Carica papaya leaf extract on platelet count in dengue fever patients. METHODS: All participants were randomised into two groups, study group and control group; the study group was given papaya leaf extract capsule of 500 mg once daily and routine supportive treatment for consecutive five days...

INTRODUCTION: Dengue is a rapidly expanding global health problem. Approximately 2.5 billion people live in dengue-risk regions with about 100 million new cases each year worldwide. The cumulative dengue diseases burden has attained an unprecedented proportion in recent times with sharp increase in the size of human population at risk. The management of dengue virus infection is essentially supportive and symptomatic and no specific treatment is available for increasing the fallen platelets, which have a significant role in causing the mortality of dengue patient...

Febrile patient with thrombocytopenia is commonly encountered by physicians especially during monsoon and perimonsoon period. Infections with protozoa, bacteria and viruses can cause thrombocytopenia with or without disseminated intravascular coagulation. Commonly dengue, malaria, scrub typhus and other rickettsial infections, meningococci, leptospira and certain viral infections present as fever with thrombocytopenia. Occasionally these patients can go on to develop a stormy course with multiorgan dysfunction requiring intensive care unit admission associated with high morbidity and mortality...

A 30-year-old Colombian woman with past history of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) presented to the emergency room with two days of global headache, arthralgia, myalgia, and low level fever and generalized erythematous rash. Platelets dropped to 9 × 10(9)/L (fourth day of symptoms) without hemorrhagic manifestations but recovered to 30 × 10(9)/L in 24 hours (fifth day). Dengue virus infection, as well as other viral infections, was ruled out. Zika virus (ZIKV) was evaluated in serum and urine samples by real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (genomic regions within E protein and NS2b protein)...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease, incidences of which have increased rapidly in the past decade. About 400 million new infections are recorded annually worldwide, and 40% of the human population lives in the areas at risk of dengue transmission. In this study, the clinical and laboratory profile of dengue diagnosed patients returning to Poland from tropical areas has been analyzed. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 65 patients based on clinical symptoms and serological tests conducted in the Department of Tropical Parasitology of Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) in Gdynia, Poland during 2010-15...

BACKGROUND: Dengue is endemic throughout Cambodia, a country faced with significant health and economic challenges. We undertook a clinical study at the National Paediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh to evaluate clinical diagnostic parameters for dengue and predictors of disease outcome. METHODS: Between September 2011 and January 2013, all consecutive inpatients aged between 1 and 15 years and presenting with suspected dengue were enrolled. They were clinically assessed using both the 1997 and 2009 WHO dengue classifications...

OBJECTIVE: Dengue fever is one of the most common arboviral mediated outbreaks reported with increased prevalence year after year with considerable morbidity and mortality. This study was designed to assess the clinical and biochemical parameters of dengue fever patients. METHODS: Prospective observational study was undertaken among adult patients in a military hospital. Five hundred fiteen patients were studied and analysed. All patients who were NS1 antigen/IgM dengue positive were included in the study...

We report here two cases of thrombocytopenic purpura at onset of Zika virus infection. A 26-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man had thrombocytopenia above 5×10(9) platelets/L. Hemorrhagic symptoms were mucosal and subcutaneous bleeding and gross hematuria and they reported episode of conjunctivitis. In both cases blood and bone marrow analysis suggested thrombocytopenic purpura, blood PCR tests for Dengue (DENV), Chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika virus (ZIKV) were negative. In both cases urinary PCR for ZIKV was positive, Prednisolone yielded early remission...

INTRODUCTION: In the tropics, the triad of fever, thrombocytopenia, and AKI portends a grim prognosis with high mortality and a severe strain on already-stretched resources. Malaria, dengue, and leptospirosis account for most cases. We undertook a review of cases to determine factors accounting for adverse prognosis. METHODS: All patients presenting to the emergency room (ER) with a history of fever, thrombocytopenia, and renal failure were included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Dengue is one of the common diseases presenting as fever with thrombocytopenia, also causing significant morbidity and complications. OBJECTIVES: Though the correlation between platelet count, bleeding manifestations and hemorrhagic complications has been extensively studied, less is known about the correlation between platelet count and non hemorrhagic complications. This study was done to see the correlation between platelet count and non hemorrhagic complications, duration of hospital stay and additive effect of leucopenia with thrombocytopenia on complications...

BACKGROUND: Concurrent infection with multiple pathogens is common in tropics, posing diagnostic and treatment challenges. Although co-infections of dengue, malaria, leptospirosis and typhoid in various combinations have been described, data on dengue and scrub typhus co-infection is distinctly limited. METHODOLOGY: This study was a retrospective analysis of dengue and scrub typhus co-infection diagnosed between January 2010 and July 2014 at a tertiary care center...
