Abstract:

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease of global public health concern. As per national records there has been steady increase in cases every passing year Gupta N et al., 2012(3) An intense dengue infection swept hyderabad in 2019.Early diagnosis of dengue is important and canbe established with commercially available serological assays Chaturvedi UC et al., 2004 (1).A total of 733 serum samples from suspected dengue cases were collected. Serological tests(ELISA )specific for dengue were performed. Of the 733 persons 299(40%) were confirmed as having dengue infection either for NS1 antigen or for IgM, ig G antibody. Higher incidence of cases in males and in the age group of 20-30 years was seen. Dengue has traditionally been held to be a disease of high population density tropical urban areas Pavri KM et al., 1978, Teixeira MG et al., 2002 (10,14). This is an effort to find out the prevalence of dengue among the patients attending ELBIT Medical Diagnostics, Banjara hills, Hyderabad. National level comprehensive studies to estimate the true burden of dengue in India and its geographical mapping are lacking. Such information would prove to be very critical in planning appropriate dengue prevention and control strategies
