Hypokalaemic quadriparesis: an unusual manifestation of dengue fever
- Correspondence to Dr Durgesh Kumar Gupta,
Dengue is the most common and widespread arthropod borne arboviral infection in the world today. Recent observations indicate that the clinical profile of dengue fever is changing with neurological manifestations being reported more frequently. A patient with dengue fever presented to us with symptoms suggestive of acute flaccid paralysis, and on subsequent investigation he was diagnosed as a case of hypokalaemic quadriparesis. Clinicians in the endemic area should be aware of such association of acute pure motor reversible quadriparesis with dengue fever.
