Abstract

Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne arboviral disease endemic in tropical countries. The spectrum of presentation of dengue fever ranges from classical flu like illness to dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome. It is usually regarded as a non-neurotropic virus and neurological manifestations of dengue are rare and hypokalemic quadriparesis is even rarer. Here we present a case report of a patient who presented with hypokalemic quadriparesis due to dengue.
