Abstract

Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever (DHF) can be very diverse in presentation ranging from asymptomatic petechial skin haemorrhages to lifethreatening intracranial, pulmonary, gastrointestinal and genitourinary haemorrhages. There have been several case reports of dengue haemorrhagic fever with intraperitoneal haemorrage secondary to splenic rupture,but only few cases with normal spleen and normal clotting profile, here we report a case in pregnant women with dengue haemorrhagic fever complicated by spontaneous intraperitoneal haemorrhage.
