Case study and Review on Dengue Fever: An Emerging Public Health Issue
Dengue is an emerging public health concern not only in Asian subcontinent but also in remote areas of world secondary to increase in number of mosquitoes, congested living facilities & lack of personal hygiene. Annually, morbidity and mortality secondary to dengue has created significant public health concerns from a socio-economic standpoint which requires increased awareness to general public. In this paper, we discuss a case of a patient who was diagnosed with dengue in urban India. Here we elaborate upon various systemic manifestations of dengue fever and also demonstrate the progression of this patient throughout the time course in hospital. In addition, we also elaborate on an interesting public health model that has been used to risk stratify areas affected with Dengue.
