Dengue Fever
  • Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world
  • estimated 50 million dengue infections occur annually
  • approximately 2.5 billion people live in dengue endemic countries
classification pps
Classification: PPS


Nonspecific symptoms

(+) tourniquet test

Grade 1


Spontaneous bleeding

Circulatory failure

Profound shock

  • single-stranded RNA virus comprising four distinct serotypes (DEN-1 to -4)
  • genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae
  • genotypes of DEN-2 and DEN-3 are frequently associated with severe disease
  • transmitted to humans through the bites of infected Aedesmosquitoes, principally Ae. Aegypti
  • Incubation period 4-10 days
  • virus enters via the skin while an infected mosquito is taking a bloodmeal
  • acute phase: virus is present in the blood and its clearance from this compartment generally coincides with defervescence

Endothelial cell dysfunction plasma leakage

  • Alterations in megakaryocytopoeisis by infection of human hematopoeitic cells and impaired progenitor cell growth  platelet dysfunction
  • Febrile Phase
  • Critical Phase
  • Recovery Phase
febrile phase
Febrile Phase
  • Sudden onset of high grade fever
  • Lasts 2-7 days
  • Facial flushing, skin erythema, generalized bodyache, myalgia, arthralgia, headache, sore throat, injected pharynx, conjunctival injection, Anorexia, nausea, vomiting
  • From mild to massive bleeding
    • Petechia and mucosal membrane bleeding --- massive vaginal bleeding and GI bleeding
  • Enlarged and tender liver
  • Earliest abnormality: decreased WBC
critical phase
Critical Phase
  • Time of defervescence; Days 3-7
  • Increase in capillary permeability paralleling with increasing hematocrit
  • period of clinically significant plasma leakage usually lasts 24–48 hours.
  • Progressive leukopenia followed by a rapid decrease in platelet count usually precedes plasma leakage.
    • No increase in capillary permeability: will improve
    • Otherwise: may become worse as a result of lost plasma volume
critical phase1
Critical Phase
  • Plasma leakage: pleural effusion, ascites
    • degree of increase above the baseline hematocrit often reflects the severity of plasma leakage
    • If critical volume is lost  Shock
      • Below normal body temperature
      • progressive organ impairment, metabolic acidosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation
        • Severe hemorrhage – increase in WBC
        • Hepatitis, encephalitis, myocarditis
critical phase2
Critical Phase
  • If with improvement after defervescence = non-severe dengue
  • If defervescence does not occur, take CBC to guide the onset of critical phase and plasma leakage
  • If with deterioration = dengue with warning signs
    • will probably recover with early intravenous rehydration
    • Some will deteriorate to severe dengue
recovery phase
Recovery Phase
  • If patient survives 24-48h critical phase  gradual reabsorption of extravascular compartment fluid in the following 48-72 h
  • Better, good appetite, no GI symptoms, hemodynamic status stable, diuresis ensues
  • Rash: “isles of white in the sea of red”
  • Pruritus, bradycardia, ECG changes
  • HCT stabilizes or may be lower (dilutional)
  • WBC rises soon after defervescence; Platelets recover later
  • Excessive IVF: pleural eff, ascites, pulmo edema, CHF
severe dengue
Severe Dengue
  • plasma leakage that may lead to shock (dengue shock) and/or fluid accumulation, with or without respiratory distress, and/or
  • severe bleeding, and/or
  • severe organ impairment
severe dengue1
Severe Dengue
  • Progression of vascular permeability  worsening hypovolemia  shock
  • Usually around the time of defervescence, usu day 4 or 5 (d 3-7)
  • Preceded by warning signs
  • Initially: tachycardia, peripheral vasoconstriction with reduced skin perfusion -- cold extremities and delayed capillary refill time
  • Narrowed pulse pressure, as peripheral vascular resistance increases
  • Decompensation – both pressures disappear abruptly
  • Fever of 2-7 days duration
  • Any 2 of the following: (WHO – 2 or more)
  • DF/DHF suspected  do CBC and actual platelet count
    • Done daily to determine hemoconcentration and thrombocytopenia
  • PT and PTT not routinely done
  • NS1 antigen test useful for rapid early diagnosis (Day 1-4)
  • Other serological tests not routinely done; but best results obtained starting on Day 5 of illness
    • Dengue IgM and IgG ELISA
    • Dengue Dot Blot ELISA
    • Dengue Immunochromatography (ICT)
    • Dengue Dipstick ELISA
admission criteria
Admission Criteria
  • Shock
  • Spontaneous bleeding
  • Danger signs: inability to drink or feed, vomits everything, convulsions, lethargy, unconsciousness, no urine output for 6-8 hours
  • Increased vascular permeability: hematocrit, serous effusion, hypoproteinemia
  • Abdominal pain
fluids outpatient
Fluids: Outpatient
  • ORS based on weight
fluids admitted without shock
Fluids: Admitted, without Shock
  • Isotonic solutions (D5LRS, D5NSS, D5 0.9%NaCl)
  • Holiday Segar Method
fluids admitted with shock
Fluids: Admitted, with Shock
  • Isotonic crystalloid (LRS, NSS, 0.9%NaCl)
  • Glucose containing solutions should be avoided to prevent osmotic diuresis
  • Infuse 20ml/kg bolus
    • If with no improvement, repeat 2-3 times; consider inotropic agent
    • If stable, gradually decrease IVF rate
  • Continuous monitoring
  • Oxygen 2-3L/min
blood transfusion
Blood Transfusion
  • Fresh whole blood/whole blood if with significant bleeding (hematemesis, hematochezia)
  • If with DIC, blood component therapy (CP, FFP, Plt)
  • Preventive transfusion has no role in DHF
  • Steroids, Vitamin C, antihistamines, Vitamin K, Albumin  No added benefit
  • Discharge: 72 hours after defervescence in those with DHF
    • 72 hours after termination of shock for those with DSS
  • Insect repellants with N,N-diethyl-1-3 methylbenzamide as active ingredient  effective and safe in children >2mos
  • Insecticides containing propoxur, organophosphates and pyrethrium most effective only indoors for a short period of time
  • Screening of windows and doors, mosquito nets
  • Defogging during dengue epidemic, larviciding
  • Covering and regular emptying and cleaning of water storage
  • Prospective dengue vaccine still mostly in Phase 1 and 2
