Neurological manifestations in dengue patients.

In conclusion, neurological manifestations including seizure and encephalopathy in children with dengue are not uncommon whereas d Dengue encephalitis is a rare entity.

Two cases of dengue meningitis: a rare first presentation.

It is demonstrated that meningitis with or without encephalitis can be the first manifestation of dengue infection, and in endemic areas, d Dengue infection should be considered as a probable etiological agent of meneditis.

4 Dengue Encephalitis

The morbidity and sometimes fatal outcome of dengue encephalitis necessitates a better understanding of the disease, early diagnosis and appropriate management.

Differentiating dengue virus infection from scrub typhus in Thai adults with fever.

Dengue fever and scrub typhus are common infections in Asia that often present as acute febrile illness of unclear etiology. We prospectively evaluated febrile adults presenting to the outpatient

Neurological Complications of Dengue Fever-A Study from a Tertiary Care Hospital of Eastern India

Encephalopathy was found to be the most common neurological complication in dengue fever in last 2 years, out of 22 patients found to have some neurological complications.

Neurological manifestations of dengue infection

The most common neurological manifestation was seizure, seen in 54.54% (12/22) of cases, followed by encephalopathy and meningitis, each of which was seen in 18.18% (4/ 22) of the cases.



Dengue encephalitis: a true entity?

This study provides strong evidence that dengue 2 and 3 viruses have neurovirulent properties and behave similarly to other members of the Flaviviridae.

Unusual neurologic manifestations occurring during dengue fever infection.

Although neurologic complications reported for dengue fever are unusual, it is reasonable to consider these manifestations as being due to immunopathologic consequences.

Detection of IgM antibodies from cerebrospinal fluid and sera of dengue fever patients.

During the dengue epidemic from late 1987 to 1989, 6 specimens of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and sera for IgM detection were collected from 4 cases virologically confirmed d Dengue patients who had neural symptoms, and showed that IgM could be detected from 14 out of 20 serum specimens.

At the root of the emergence of dengue as a major health problem are changes in human demography and behavior, leading to unchecked populations of and increased exposure to the principal domestic mosquito vector, Aedes aegypti.

Dengue fever with encephalopathy in Australia.

During an epidemic of dengue type 2 virus in the rural community of Charters Towers, North Queensland, Australia, in 1993, 210 cases presented to the local hospital with signs and symptoms of classic

Dengue haemorrhagic fever with unusual manifestations.

It is certain from this study that there is no pathological evidence of encephalitis and Hepatic dysfunction found in associated with jaundice and encephalopathy is possibly caused by toxic substances, drugs and/or associated with underlying liver conditions.

Origins of dengue type 2 viruses associated with increased pathogenicity in the Americas.

Phylogenetic analyses suggest that these genotypes of dengue type 2 virus originated in Southeast Asia and that they displaced the native, American genotype in at least four countries, and vaccination and other control efforts should therefore be directed at decreasing the transmission of these "virulent" genotypes.

Epidemiology and Clinical Features of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever in Ho Chi Minh City and the Centre for Tropical Diseases; Viet Nam

The majority of confirmed cases were children of 5-9 years old and hepatomegaly relates to the severe grades in the DHF with shock, and patients were given fluid to drink on the first day to prevent shock.
