Globe Rupture ? A Rare Ocular Manifestation of Dengue Fever in Convalescent Phase
Abstract: Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus (DENV), a flavivirus, spread by Aedes aegypti mosquito. Most people infected with dengue virus are asymptomatic or only have mild symptoms such as an uncomplicated fever. Severe dengue is defined as that associated with severe bleeding, severe organ dysfunction, or severe plasma leakage. Ophthalmic manifestations can involve both the anterior and posterior segment and are usually associated with a low platelet count. We report an ocular emergency of acute retrobulbar, intrabulbar hemorrhage, and globe rupture as a rare complication of a patient with dengue in the convalescent phase, with normal platelet counts.
