Background and Objectives: Yearly epidemics of Dengue fever occur post-monsoon in India's capital, Delhi. A prospective observational study was conducted during the outbreak months to understand the epidemiology and outcome of this infection and its economic impact. Materials and Methods: Febrile hospitalized (n=219) patients with dengue fever diagnosed by a combination of MAC-ELISA, GAC-ELISA and NS1Antigen-ELISA were enrolled. Epidemiologic (including economic) parameters, clinical, radiological and laboratory manifestations were noted and patients followed up over the period of hospital stay...

BACKGROUND: Dengue fever is an important arboviral disease. The clinical manifestations vary from a mild non-specific febrile syndrome to severe life-threatening illness. The virus can usually be detected in the blood during the early stages of the disease. Dengue virus has also been found in isolated cases in the cerebrospinal fluid, urine, nasopharyngeal sections and saliva. In this report, we describe the isolation of dengue virus from the upper respiratory tract of four confirmed cases of dengue...

BACKGROUND: Each year dengue related infections are rising in tropical countries. There is not enough data available on dermatological manifestations of dengue fever. This study was conducted to investigate prevalence and type of dermatological manifestations of dengue fever (DF). Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DHF), and Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS). METHODS: A Prospective study was contacted in Department of Medicine, Shaikh Zayed Hospital, Lahore, from 3rd Oct to 20th Nov 2010...

One of the major health hazards which is prevalent and dangerous is the dengue fever which causes the death of many people. This may be associated with a variety of mucocutaneous manifestations which may be of help in early diagnosis. Many biochemical assays and hematological investigations may aid in the further diagnosis and treatment of the fatal disease. Oral lesions are rare to occur and if present, are often mistaken for platelet abnormality. This case report highlights the importance of oral lesions and it is the first of its kind to be reported as dengue hemorrhagic fever...

Dengue viral infection is a cause of considerable morbidity and mortality and may be associated with a variety of mucocutaneous manifestations that may provide important early clues to the diagnosis of this condition. Cutaneous and mucosal findings like confluent erythema, morbilliform eruptions, and hemorrhagic lesions may figure prominently in the clinical features of dengue. The differential diagnoses include a large number of bacterial and viral exanthems as well as drug rash.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics of patients with dengue viral infection during the 2008 outbreak in Lahore in order to better understand the clinical pattern and severity of disease in Lahore. METHODS: We analyzed the clinical characteristics of 110 patients infected with dengue virus; data were collected on standardized data collection sheets at two tertiary care hospitals from September to December 2008. Dengue infection was confirmed serologically or by real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)...

A previously healthy 11-month-old girl presented with fever and rash for 6 days. Physical examination revealed an irritable infant with a high fever, injected conjunctivae, red cracked lips, posterior auricular lymphadenopathy, hepatomegaly, generalized erythematous maculopapular rash and petechial hemorrhage on trunk, face and extremities. Complete blood count showed atypical lymphocytosis and thrombocytopenia. Dengue infection was initially diagnosed. The persistent fever and clinical manifestations of Kawasaki disease (KD) were observed on day 8 with high erythrocyte sedimentation rate (56 mm/hr)...

Viruses are important pathogens in tropical areas; most of them, especially the tropical hemorrhagic fevers, produce mucocutaneous manifestations. More than any other kind of pathogen, viruses have the possibility for being widespread, since they have a greater probability of mutation than do bacteria, can cross species barriers easily, and infect both human beings and animals in habitats with a great biodiversity. Tropical habitats also have been subject to major ecologic changes in the last few decades, exposing humans to direct contact with these viruses and allowing hemorrhagic fevers due to new emergent viruses such as flaviviruses, filoviruses, arenaviruses, and hantaviruses to become major threats to public health...

One hundred and ten adult patients hospitalized with dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) during the recent outbreak in North India were prospectively studied. Of these, 48 (43.6%) were grade I, 40 (36.4%) grade II, 10 (9.1%) grade III and 12 (10.9%) grade IV DHF. Dengue shock syndrome (DSS) was seen in 22 (20%) patients. Fever, headache, myalgias and arthralgias were the common symptoms seen in 100%, 80.9%, 76.2% and 52.3% patients, respectively. Spontaneous bleeding was seen in 62 patients (56.4%) with mucocutaneous bleeding being the most common (46 patients)...

UNLABELLED: CHANGING EPIDEMIOLOGY: During the last half of the 20th century, dengue has spread to most countries in the inter-tropical zone and today is the most common cause of human arbovirus infection. In tropical zones, dengue is a frequent cause of fever and can be observed in travellers returning from an endemic zone. SKIN AND MUCOSAL MANIFESTATIONS: Though variable, skin and mucosal manifestations are important to recognize. Exanthema occurs late after constitutional symptoms and is suggestive...
