Approximately 50 million infections occur annually and dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral illness (Davidson‟s Priniples). Dengue virus (DENV) is the most common arbovirus found in India. It is named after Swahili word „‟dinga” meaning fastidious or careful, which would describe the gait of a person suffering from the bone pain of dengue fever.it has four serotypes (DEN-1 to DEN-4). Recently, the fifth serotype (DEN-5) was discovered in 2013 from Bangkok (Aedes aegypti is… 

Seasonal, Serological Markers and Platelet Count Association with Dengue Fever

Dengue virus (DENV) is the most common arbovirus found in India and is named after Swahili word „‟dinga” meaning fastidious or careful, which would describe the gait of a person suffering from the bone pain of dengue fever.

The median age of dengue patients has decreased and younger patients may be more susceptible, as highlighted in a retrospective study conducted retrospectively for a period of two years in Melmaruvathur, India.

Evaluation of diagnostic tests: dengue

It has been proposed that the classification of d Dengue disease should be simplified as severe and non-severe dengue, which would make patient management and surveillance easier and permit early intervention to treat patients and prevent or control epidemics.

In cases of fever, thrombocytopenia is more consistently associated whenever NS1 was detected compared to antibody detection, and correlates well when NS1 and IgM are detected simultaneously.
