Background:Dengue is one of the most common arboviral infection in the world. Evaluation of the clinical parameters for the early diagnosis of the disease is used to assist the preventive strategies. This study aimed to evaluate the hematological and biochemical parameters retrospectively in patients with serologically confirmed dengue infection over a one-year period.Method:The study was conducted in clinical laboratories of a tertiary care hospital serving the people of Karnataka and neighbouring states. A retrospective analysis of known IgM and anti-NS1 seropositive dengue patients over a period of one year was done to evaluate the hematological and biochemical data for any significant variations.Results: A total of 108 patients were studied. 100 (92.60%) patients had Dengue Fever, 4 (3.70%) had Dengue haemorrhagic Fever, and 4 (3.70%) had Dengue Shock Syndrome. Thrombocytopenia in 87 (80.60%) cases, elevated AST in 92 (85.2%) and raised CK/CPK level observed in 50% of the cases.Conclusion:The alterations in hematological and biochemical parameters is associated with the patient case history and the clinical diagnosis.
