Abstract

Dengue can present with wide spectrum of clinical manifestations including atypical presentations. But fever is the most common clinical presenta­tion even with the atypical presentations. Here we report a case of dengue hemorrhagic infection without fever in a 53-year-old female. Clinically and serologically she was diagnosed to have den­gue hemorrhagic fever with ultrasound evidence of plasma leakage as well and she was managed successfully and she showed complete recovery without any complications.
