Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world. The present study was conducted to assess cases of dengue fever in Pediatric population.
Materials & Methods: 52 confirmed cases of dengue of both genders were studied. Haemoglobin, haematocrit and platelet count was recorded.
Results: Out of 52 patients, boys were 32 and girls were 20. Common symptoms were fever in 52, vomiting in 40, respiratory distress in 26, pain abdomen in 45, loose stools in 15 and peri- orbital puffiness in 12 cases. The mean hemoglobin level at admission was 12.1 gm% and at discharge was 12.4 gm%. The mean TLC was 56240 cumm of blood at admission and at discharge was 122452 cumm of blood. The difference was significant (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Common symptoms were fever, vomiting, respiratory distress and pain abdomen.
