A Prospective Study on Platelets Count and Serological Marker in Dengue Infection in a Tertiary Hospital

  • Manoj Saxena Associate Professor, Department of Pathology, G. S Medical College & Hospital, Hapur.
Keywords: Dengue virus, endemic, NS1


Background: Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne infection. As far as quantities of people tainted, it is by a long shot the most crushing of all the perceived arthropod-transmitted infection illnesses.

Methods: This study was conducted in  Department of Pathology. A total of 82 serum samples from clinically suspected dengue patients attending outdoors, causality services and indoor patients were included in this study.

Results: In our study, 512 total samples were included in this study. 82 samples were positive, and 430 samples were negative out of 512 samples. In the present study, 54% were males and 46% were females. In this study showed relationship between Platelet count and other parameters.

Conclusions: Thrombocytopenia found in case of fever which is more constantly in dengue positive sooner than dengue negative cases. It correlates well when NS1 & IgM are found simultaneously.
