Abstract

Acute intravascular hemolysis (AIH) with hemoglobinuria is a rare complication of dengue viral infection. Review of the literature revealed only one report of AIH as a complication of dengue fever (DF). We report a case of AIH with massive hemoglobinuria in a 17-year-old Sri Lankan male, in the febrile phase of DF. This unusual and rare complication warranted forced diuresis, to prevent acute kidney injury. This was a departure from the recommended fluid therapy for DF.
