Author(s): Sarada G., Suhasini M., Venkata Chetty A., G. Sudhakar*
In this Prospective Observational study during study period of one year, the incidence of severe dengue was 18% among children admitted with diagnosis of dengue fever. Nearly 40% children were of age 0-5 years. Case fatality rate in severe dengue was 5.5% .78% children responded either to crystalloids/colloids. Incidence of shock and bleeding at admission was significantly higher among children who died. Incidence of hepatic dysfunction and coagulopathy were higher and mean platelet count was lower in children who died compared to children who survived. Presence of shock, bleeding tendencies, coagulopathy at admission predict non response to fluids.
