Prasad S, Prasad T, Amerva T. Post - dengue elevation of serum transaminase until returning to normal limit: long term follow-up. Case Study Case Rep. 2017; 7(4): 83 - 87.
Dengue is a common problem in tropical medicine. This infection can manifest as acute febrile illness and might result in hemorrhagic complication. Long term complication due to dengue is rarely mentioned. The hepatic dysfunction due to dengue is observable and the problem can last for a long term. In this case report, the authors report on an interesting case of post dengue elevation of serum transaminase. The long term follow-up of the case until returning to normal limit was done. The period that requires for returning to normal is 8 months. The elevation of serum transaminase enzymes after acute dengue infection is possible and it can spontaneous resolve without any requirement for specific management. Nevertheless, the time required for returning to normal is long. Based on our best knowledge, this is the first world report on the closed follow-up of case with post dengue elevation of serum transaminase.
