Neurological manifestations of dengue viral infection
TLDR
Dengue viruses should be considered as a cause of neurological disorders in endemic regions and standardized case definitions for specific neurological complications are still needed.
Neurological Manifestations of Dengue Infection
TLDR
The main neurological complications of dengue virus infection, such as central nervous system (CNS), peripheral nervous system, and ophthalmic complications were discussed according to clinical features, treatment and possible pathogenesis.
Dengue fever with encephalitis: An uncommon presentation of common illness
TLDR
A 21-year-old female who presented with dengue fever with neurological manifestations was diagnosed with d Dengue encephalitis and Conservative and supportive care was provided, including intravenous fluid therapy, antibiotics, antivirals, antiseizure medications, and corticosteroids.
A Case Report on Dengue Encephalitis With Optic Neuropathy
TLDR
A 19-year-old male presented with signs and symptoms of encephalitis and optic neuropathy, following a diagnosis of dengue fever, and a high-dose intravenous steroid therapy was given in pulses, which resulted in complete visual and neurological recovery.
Neurological Complications of Dengue Fever
TLDR
Any patient developing acute neuromuscular weakness during the course or within a fortnight of remission from dengue fever must be screened for acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP), hypokalemic paralysis, or acute myositis.
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in dengue viral infection
Neurological complications and death in children with dengue virus infection: report of two cases
TLDR
Retrospective studies have found that up to 4% of the patients have dengue virus infections, which leads us to believe that in endemic areas, this infection should be suspected in cases of encephalic and febrile symptoms.
Diagnosis criteria of dengue encephalitis.
TLDR
The above criterion of dengue encephalitis could reduce the number of cases that may have been underestimated and the choice of one of these laboratorial methods should be performed according to the time of infection onset.
Neurological Manifestations of Dengue Fever
TLDR
Encephalopathy, encephalitis and syncope were the commonest manifestations, followed by acute symptomatic seizures, intracranial haemorrhage and GBS, in patients diagnosed with dengue in India.

[Neurological complications arising from dengue virus infection].
TLDR
Two cases of immune-mediated CNS involvement following classic infection by the dengue virus are described: one involving post-infectious disseminated acute encephalitis and the other consisting of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Dengue infection in patients presenting with neurological manifestations in a dengue endemic population.
TLDR
The high risk of dengue among patients with suspected viral CNS infections in this study supports the need for an increased index of suspicion of d Dengue in patients presenting with neurological manifestations in dengu endemic countries.
A rare case of dengue encephalitis
TLDR
An interesting case of dengue encephalitis during an outbreak in Delhi, India is reported, which showed extensive lesions involving the midbrain, cerebellum, thalamus and medial temporal region on both sides of the MRI brain, which is an uncommon manifestation of d Dengue fever.
Dengue Encephalopathy
TLDR
One hundred fifty‐two cases of dengue encephalopathy admitted during 3 periods at the Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital in Jakarta were studied retrospectively, and laboratory examination showed an unusually high increase of serum transaminases, hyponatremia, and hypoxia.

TLDR
An overview of the clinical spectrum of d Dengue infection, and evidence supporting the existence of dengue encephalitis is examined.
Neurological manifestations in dengue patients.
TLDR
In conclusion, neurological manifestations including seizure and encephalopathy in children with dengue are not uncommon whereas d Dengue encephalitis is a rare entity.

TLDR
Dengue fever was associated with widespread neurological complications and Brachial neuritis and opsoclonus-myOClonus syndrome were observed for the first time in this study.

TLDR
Clinicians should be aware that neurological manifestations in dengue fever are not uncommon and Clinicians should been aware that patients diagnosed with d Dengue fever during an epidemic were screened for neurological manifestations.
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.
