Study of Hematological Parameters In Dengue Fever: A Retrospective Study

Madhuri S. Kate*, Ritika Kumar**, Anita Chaudhari***.

Abstract
Background and objectives: Dengue is a major preventable and treatable cause of morbidity and mortality among children and adults. Hematological examination is an essential step in the management. Hence this study was undertaken to document the haematological changes in dengue fever. Method: This is a retrospective study conducted in the Department of Pathology for a period of 6 months from January to June 2016. All patients with fever and clinical suspicion of dengue were subjected to NS1 antigen test. Patients with documented NS1 positivity were included in the study. Hematological analysis was done by 5 part differential cell counter and subsequent peripheral smear examination. Results: Total 57 serologically positive dengue cases were seen during the study period. Maximum no of cases were seen in January-February. Range of haemoglobin percentage was lowest 4.2 g/dl and highest 15.6 g/dl with a mean of 11.95g/dl. 50.8% had platelets above 75000 while 5.3% had <20000/cu mm. 52.6% had normal leucocytic count, 35% had leucopenia and 12.3% had leucocytosis. Conclusion: Dengue infection is on a rise in india. Many experts believe that it is now endemic in india and no longer seasonal since a cases can be detected round the year though the peak incidence still remains during the rains. Any patient with fever and other clinical symptoms suspicious of dengue should be subjected to complete haematological profile as well as specific tests for dengue. Early and prompt diagnosis goes hand in hand with aggressive measures for proper sanitation can greatly limit dengue afflicted mortality. [Madhuri K NJIRM 2017; 8(4):58-62]

Key words: Dengue, endemic, leucopenia, thrombocytopenia, dengue shock syndrome

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
