Resumen

SILVA DELGADO, Hermann et al. Neonatal dengue in Peru: a case report. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.1, pp. 140-144. ISSN 1726-4634.

We present the case of a full-term female newborn, whose mother died seven days postpartum from multi-organ failure due to severe dengue confirmed by NS1 antigen detection and positive IgM. The newborn did not have any complication, but at the fourth day of life she developed fever, jaundice, signs of plasma leakage, thrombocytopenia, hepatomegaly, ascitis, and others signs of systemic inflammation response syndrome. She fully recovered with supportive treatment. The RT-PCR test of a peripheral blood sample revealed a positive result for the dengue virus serotype 2, confirming the first case of neonatal dengue reported in Peru.
