Dengue fever is often a self-limiting illness of viral origin and is transmitted by mosquitoes. Children, especially those under 2 years of age and those with comorbid illnesses are particularly vulnerable. A small percentage of individuals with the infection may develop features of severe dengue (SD) which is potentially life threatening. Warning signs often precede the development of SD. The recognition of symptoms of SD fever and optimal fluid management are key factors in the treatment of this illness.
