Immunopathophysiology Dengue Fever Classic Dengue Fever Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever Flu like symptoms
Cleared by immune system with supportive therapy More severe
Can be fatal
Dengue Shock Syndrome Targets symptomatic relief.

Facilitate immune system to clear the infection.

Analgesics and NSAIDs

Supportive fluids if patient doesn’t feel like drinking.

Patients with classic DF symptoms should be closely monitored - risk of DHF. Treatment and management of Classic Dengue Treatment for DHF aims to prevent the patient encountering Dengue Shock Syndrome (DSS)

Treatment for DHF is determined on a case by case basis, but targets the control of the acute symptoms associated with DHF Treatment and management of DHF Dengue: Guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and prevention, pg 100 Dengue: Guidelines for diagnosis, treatment and prevention, pg 102 Diagnostic Tests:
Haemagglutination Inhibition Test
Serology Full Blood Count (FBE)
