AbstractBackground: Dengue infection is a systemic and dynamic disease. It has a wide clinical spectrum that includes both severe and non-severe clinical manifestations. Often accompanied by typical changes in blood and biochemical profile.
Objectives: To see hematological and biochemical profile of dengue patients attending Pravara Rural Hospital
Material and Methods: This prospective study was conducted in the Department of Medicine, Pravara Rural Hospital, Loni from 2013 to 2015 for a period of 2 years on 128 dengue cases. All the necessary baseline investigations like complete blood count, platelet count, haematocrit, liver function test, kidney function test, coagulation profile like prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, bleeding time, clotting time, X-ray chest, ultrasound abdomen were done at admission. Data analyzed using Microsoft excel.
Results: Majority of the patients in the study were less than 35 years of age (74.22%). Maximum numbers of patients were in less than 25 years of age group. 1.56% patients has<10000 platelet count. 48.44% patients were having total leukocyte count less than 4000. AST was raised in 35.16% patients whereas ALT was raised in 28.91% patients. Haematocrit was raised in 35.94% patients.It was evident from the above table that NS1Ag was positive in 98.44% patients. IgG was positive in only one patient whereas None was IgM positive.
Conclusions: blood and biochemical profile help us in deciding treatment protocol and assessment of recovery by the patients
