Management of Dengue Fever

Dr David Tran

classic clinical dengue fever
Classic clinical dengue fever
  • Incubation period 3 to 14 days (usually 4 to 7 days)
  • Sudden onset of fever with severe headache
  • Retro-orbital pain, fatigue
  • Often associated with myalgia and arthralgia
  • Duration of fever usually 5 to 7 days
  • Sometime maculopapular rash(50% to 66% of cases)
  • Other non specific signs as inflamed pharynx, gastro-intestinal symptoms
hemorrhagic manifestations biologic abnormalities
Hemorrhagic manifestations / biologic abnormalities
  • Petechiae, purpura
  • Gum bleeding, epistaxis, menorrhagia, gastro-intestinal bleedings (rare)
  • Thrombocytopenia, leukopenia with lymphopenia
  • Mild elevation of hepatic transaminases & LDH
dengue hemorrhagic fever dengue shock syndrome
Dengue hemorrhagic fever & Dengue shock syndrome
  • Physiopathology: capillary leakage & hemorrhagic manifestations.
  • 4 to 7 days after the onset (at approximately the date of defervescence)
  • Abdominal pain, vomiting, consciousness troubles, hypothermia
  • Marked decrease in platelet count.
  • Mortality: up to 10 or 20%
diagnosis of dengue hemorrhagic fever triad of symptoms
Diagnosis of dengue hemorrhagic fever (triad of symptoms)
  • Hemorrhagic manifestations
  • Platelet count < 100.000 (often >3rd day of illness)
  • Evidence of plasma leakage (Hematocrite  pleural effusion, ascites, hypoproteinemia)
dengue shock syndrome
Dengue shock syndrome
  • Rapid weak pulse & low blood pressure (BP < 90mmHg)
  • The duration of this shock is short after appropriate volume replacement therapy (Colloid or Cristalloid infusions)
  • Mortality rate is up to 40%
serodiagnosis of dengue fever
Serodiagnosis of dengue fever
  • Serology (IgM capture ELISA)
  • Problem: negativity of the test early in the course of the disease > should be performed only 4 to 5 days after the onset of fever.
  • IgM: remain positive for 3 to 6 month
  • IgG: remain positive for life
dengue ns1 antigen testing
Dengue NS1 antigen testing
  • Early detection of Ag NS1 in blood sample of infected patients > confirm early acute infection
  • Detection of all 4 types of dengue serotypes
  • Result available in 15 min. (BioRad® chromatographic strip test)
  • High specificity (100%) and positive predictive value
slide14

Although in some reports, the same efficiency of detection for virus of the 4 serotypes has been described for the Dengue Early ELISA and Strip tests (Dussart et al., 2008), A recent analysis of the performance of these tests in Vietnam suggests a lower sensitivity for DENV-2 compared with DENV-1 and DENV-3.

Problem of sensibility of NS1 detection tests(Ramirez, diagnostic microbiology & infectious disease, Sept 2009)

These tests in Vietnam suggests a lower sensitivity for DENV-2 compared with DENV-1 and DENV-3. Also, a decreased sensitivity for DENV-4 with the Dengue Early ELISA has been reported in studies from South America (Bessoff et al., 2008; Dussart et al., 2008).

A lower sensitivity for DENV-2 has been described in samples from Vietnam (Hang et al., 2009) tested by the PLATELIA™systems (ELISA and Strip) and belonging to the Asian genotype 1 (according to the classification of Twiddy et al., 2002).

management of dengue virus infected patient
Management of dengue virus infected patient
  • Most of cases can be managed on an outpatient basis (antipyretic like paracetamol, bed rest, oral hydratation)
  • Platelet counts and hematocrite determination should be repeated at least every 24 hours
  • Patient with platelet count < 100.000 should be hospitalized (high risk for dengue hemorrhagic & dengue shock syndrome)
