Abstract:

Dengue is the most important mosquito-borne, human viral disease in many tropical and sub-tropical areas. India is endemic for Dengue infection. The purpose of this Study was to evaluate the occurrence of dengue fever among clinically suspected patients. We report a retrospective analysis of the dengue positivity in the serum samples tested during December, 2011 to November, 2012. This study was conducted in the Department of Microbiology, attached to a Tertiary Care Hospitals in Central India after obtaining ethical clearance over a time period of one year. A total of 731 serum samples on day one of fever from clinically Dengue suspected cases were received in the department of Microbiology. Of the 731 patients, 173 (23.6%) were tested positive for Dengue infection. Among them, 26/173 (14.03%) were from paediatric age while 147/173 (84.97%) were adults. A total of 10 cases were positive for NS1 antigen and IgG antibodies while 6 cases tested positive for NS1 antigen and IgM antibody. A total of 110, 21 and 23 were positive for NS 1 antigen, IgG antibody and IgM antibody respectively. Remaining 3 were positive for IgG and IgM antibodies. Of these173 positive cases, 110 (63.5%) were primary infections and 63 (36.5%) were secondary infections.
