Case Report

A Rare Manifestation of Congenital Dengue Infection

D Kumar, RK Sanjeev


Abstract

Congenital dengue is caused by trans-placental transfer of virus from the infected mother to the fetus. We are reporting a case of stillbirth in a mother suffering from severe dengue infection. The stillborn was found to have myocarditis and pulmonary haemorrhage on autopsy. The report illustrates myocardial tropism of the dengue virus and its propensity to cause catastrophic complications during late gestation.
