Abstract: Dengue is a global endemic and most prevalent human arbovirus disease. Recently, platelet indices have been assessed usefully in the diagnosis conditions with abnormal platelet counts. A case control study was conducted to investigate and assess the role of platelet indices in patients with dengue infection in Red Sea State, Sudan. Platelet counts (PLT), mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW) and platelet large cell ratio (P-LCR) were measured. MPV and PLT were significantly lower in cases of dengue (P
