Dengue virus infections are known to manifest in three main forms: - Dengue with or without warning signs and severe Dengue fever.[1] All three presentations of the disease usually recover uneventfully if accepted protocols are adhered to.[2] Uncommon manifestations of dengue fever, including neurological sequelae such as mononeuropathy, encephalopathy, transverse myelitis, polyradiculopathy and Guillain-Barre syndrome[3–5] have also been recognized in the past.
