Menorrhagia: Dengue a Rare Cause

Dr Varsha Mukherji

Abstract: Dengue fever is a major public health problem in topical countries. Clinical manifestations range from non-specific viral syndrome to a severe and fatal hemorrhagic disease. A 41-year-old multiparous woman presented to us following 6 days of heavy menstrual bleed. She had a history of fever with headache & arthralgia for 5 days. Her menstrual cycles were regular. On examination she had moderate pallor. Her UPT was negative and gynecological examination was normal. In view of the regional outbreak of dengue fever, serology tests were carried out. Immunochromatography was +ve for IgM. Lab evaluation revealed a Hb of 9g/dl & a platelet count of 70, 000/mm3. The woman was given nonspecific hemostatic agents after which her platelet count rose. Her condition improved and she had the next 3 normal cycles of menses. Menorrhagia as a sole presentation in dengue is rare. In dengue epidemic area, dengue should be considered as a probable etiological cause of menorrhagia.
