Abstract
Dengue fever (DF)/dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) has emerged as a global public health problem with countries in Asia and the Pacific sharing more than 70% of the disease burden. A total of 312 cases admitted to Pediatric and Sea Port Hospitals in Port Sudan were clinically diagnosed as DHF. The mortality rate recorded was 3.8% (n=l2). Of the cases 73.4% were patients 5- 15 years of age. A total of 91.2% of cases were admitted during May and June 2005 with 49.4% residing in the eastern region of Port Sudan. Dengue shock syndrome was observed in 37 of 312 (1 1.9%). All patients had
thrombocytopenia with platelets count ranged from <100, 000 to <150,000 cell/mm3, Of the 40 sera tested using RAPID-cassette test in the Khartoum
Central Public Health Lab, 36 (90%) were dengue IgM positive. A subset of these sern (n=23) were sent to NAMRU-3 and confinned by IgM-capture ELISA; 9 of 23 were PCR positive for dengue serotype 3.
