Disease Progression of Severe Dengue Typical dengue is manageable and prompt interventions aids quick recovery. However, when dengue is misdiagnosed, mistreated or provided inadequate attention by the patient and attendants the condition of patient worsens. Typical dengue transforms into Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF). It is a severe condition in which patient presents with • Fluid accumulation • Difficulty in breathing • Severe abdominal pain • Cold clammy skin • Postural hypotension • Persistent vomiting • Nose bleeds • Mucosal bleeding • Progressive elevation in hematocrit • Abrupt drop in blood pressure • Hepatomegaly • Restlessness • CVS symptoms; dizziness, tachypnea, tachycardia, low level of consciousness DHF leads to internal bleeding, hypotention, and organ failure which ultimately leads to death. The mortality rate of DHF is 2.5%
