Objectives: To provide a comprehensive review of dengue, with an emphasis on clinical syndromes, classification, diagnosis, and management, and to outline relevant aspects of epidemiology, immunopathogenesis, and prevention strategies. Dengue, a leading cause of childhood mortality in Asia and South America, is the most rapidly spreading and important arboviral disease in the world and has a geographic distribution of >100 countries. Data Source: Boolean searches were carried out by using… 
A Review on – Dengue
TLDR
A major challenge for public health officials in all tropical areas of the world is to develop and implement sustainable prevention and control programs that will reverse the trend of emergent dengue hemorrhagic fever.
Factors Associated with Dengue Shock Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis of relevant studies that reported factors in both DSS and dengue hemorrhagic fever revealed that age, female sex, neurological signs, nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, hemoconcentration, ascites, pleural effusion, and biomarkers involved in DSS were significantly associated with DSS when pooling all original relevant studies.
Dengue virus: A global human threat: Review of literature
TLDR
A detailed overview on dengue virus infections, varied clinical manifestations, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and prevention and treatment is provided.
Clinical Characteristics and Risk Factors of Dengue Shock Syndrome in Children
TLDR
This study validated most of the clinical variables present in the current WHO guidelines as markers of severe disease and add additional variables that can help to predict the risk of progression to shock.
Epidemic of Dengue and Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever in Pakistan
TLDR
High grade fever with myalgia, leucopenia and thrombocytopenia were characteristic features of d Dengue fever, and additionally, hemorrhagic manifestations indicated dengue hemorrhagic fever.
A Case of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever and the Use of Supportive Therapy
TLDR
Dengue fever is a mosquito-bound viral illness that occurs in tropical climates that is endemic in 110 countries and can be life threatening causing thrombocytopenia, bleeding and increased vascular permeability.
CONCEPT AND MANAGEMENT OF DENGUE FEVER (HUMMA DANAJ) IN UNANI AND MODERN PERSPECTIVE
TLDR
In this article, all the measures used to treat the symptoms of dengue fever and enhance the platelets count, in both modern and Unani system of medicine are discussed.
Clinical Profile of Children with Dengue and Factors Associated with Severe Dengue and Dengue with Warning Signs
TLDR
Most of the patients with d Dengue present in the age group of 6-12 years and have dengue with warning signs or severe dengued, with a male preponderance mostly due to more outdoor activities.
Post-dengue acute disseminated encephalomyelitis: A case report and meta-analysis
TLDR
There was a significant difference between cases having complete recovery or bad outcomes in the onset day of neurological manifestations being earlier and in temperature being higher in cases having bad outcomes (p-value < 0.05), confirmed by classification trees which included these two variables.
A study of sterile pyuria in dengue fever
  • P. N., S. .

    International Journal of Advances in Medicine
  • 2019
TLDR
Sterile pyuria is quite common manifestation in dengue fever which resembles urinary tract infection and therefore does not require any empirical antibiotic treatment and is often missed.

Corticosteroids for treating dengue shock syndrome.
TLDR
There is insufficient evidence to justify the use of corticosteroids in managing dengue shock syndrome, and clinicians should not use them unless they are participating in a randomized controlled trial comparing cortICosteroids with placebo.

  • 2004
TLDR
RT-PCR is definitely the most satisfactory test that can be used on these infections, since it has been shown to be able to detect dengue viruses up to the 10th day after the onset of the symptoms, so molecular techniques may soon assume a very important role in d Dengue diagnosis.
Dengue: an update.
TLDR
The status of vaccine development is described and it is emphasised that the only alternative that the authors have today to control the disease is through control of its vector Aedes aegypti.
An epidemic of dengue haemorrhagic fever & dengue shock syndrome in & around Vellore.
TLDR
An epidemic of dengue haemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome (DHF/DSS) in the North Arcot Ambedkar district and the adjoining districts in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh is described.
Dengue hemorrhagic fever in infants: a study of clinical and cytokine profiles.
TLDR
The present study is the first to report evidence of production of cytokines in infants with DHF/DSS and to describe the difference between the cytokine profile of infants with primary dengue virus infections and children with secondary infections.
Early clinical and biological features of severe clinical manifestations of dengue in Vietnamese adults.
TLDR
Several severe manifestations of d Dengue were observed in Vietnamese adults and these manifestations were associated with early clinical and biological indicators, which may be useful for clinicians to better monitor adult dengue patients, particularly in tropical areas where health resources may be limited.
Dengue in the early febrile phase: viremia and antibody responses.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that all four serotypes of d Dengue virus can cause dengue hemorrhagic fever, that all dengu patients as defined by serology experience viremia during the febrile phase, and that as fever subsides, so does vireia.
Don't forget dengue! Clinical features of dengue fever in returning travellers.
TLDR
Dengue virus infection should be considered in all febrile travellers who have recently returned from areas where the disease is endemic and in whom tests for malaria are negative.
Severe dengue: the need for new case definitions.
TLDR
Three improvements are necessary to standardise the dengue haemorrhagic fever definition and to allow it to do well in different populations: redefine the threshold for thrombocytopenia, clarify the standard practice and value of the tourniquet test, and incorporate a criterion to measure intravenous fluid replacement.
Dengue encephalitis: a true entity?
TLDR
This study provides strong evidence that dengue 2 and 3 viruses have neurovirulent properties and behave similarly to other members of the Flaviviridae.
