Euro Infectious Diseases 2020: Dengue Cerebellitis in an adult male: A case report & literature review - Kathrine Bernadette Apostol - Institute of Neurological Sciences

Introduction: Purely cerebellar disorder confounding dengue fever in a grown-up patient with hazard factors for stroke are uncommon. Our writing audit distinguished just 5 other comparable cases, all from tropical nations. Case This is an instance of a 36-year-old hypertensive and dyslipidemia Filipino male treated as an instance of dengue fever. On the fourth day of his sickness, he abruptly gave cerebellar manifestations. Neuroimaging done was negative. His dyslipidemia and hypertension were overseen as needs be with meds. His dengue was made do with IV liquid hydration and sequential full blood check observing. The entirety of his neurologic indications settled unexpectedly inside about fourteen days. Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever frequency is expanding in Sri Lanka, particularly among the youthful populace. Exceptional introductions of this basic disease make demonstrative quandaries and can postpone standard treatment which prompts horrible results. The rate of dengue fever is on the ascent in tropical nations. In Sri Lanka, almost 45,000 patients were accounted for in 2012. With the expanding numbers, uncommon appearances of dengue are infrequently experienced. We report a patient who gave respective cerebellar signs as the introducing highlight of dengue.


Dengue fever (DF) is a main source of bleakness in Sri Lanka and 185,688 associated cases with dengue were accounted for to the Epidemiology Unit, Ministry of Health from everywhere the island during 2017. Roughly 41% of dengue cases were accounted for from the Western Province of Sri Lanka. The principal serologically affirmed instance of dengue was accounted for in 1962 and the primary recorded dengue episode happened in 1965–1966. DF and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) contain the majority of indicative sickness while dengue encephalitis is an uncommon substance (around 4 to 21%).


Dengue-related neurological appearances have as of late been on the ascent. Cerebellar disorder entangling dengue fever has infrequently been accounted for in the writing. We present a case report of dengue-related cerebellar condition and played out a writing audit to cause to notice this uncommon neurological difficulty. Dengue fever is a typical arboviral contamination in the tropical nations bringing about critical grimness and mortality. Its frequency is toward rising pattern in numerous tropical nations with intermittent tops in scourge extents detailed after rainstorm downpours. Worldwide occurrence of dengue has definitely expanded over the most recent couple of years. It is assessed that 390 million individuals gets dengue diseases every year, of which 96 million show obviously.


The clinical introduction of dengue contamination has a wide range, going from gentle clinical febrile sickness to extreme ailment. Barely any patients create perilous difficulty, for example, dengue hemorrhagic fever, which is related with plasma spillage and stun. As of late, the virological attributes of dengue infections have been changing, bringing about far-reaching neurological complexities. Intense liver disappointment, intense kidney injury, and multiorgan disappointment are known entanglements. Nonetheless, numerous abnormal appearances have been accounted for with dengue, and there are numerous reports of neurological indications. These incorporate aseptic meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, intracranial discharge, and mono/polyneuropathies. The pathophysiological premise of these neurological indications is not completely perceived. Cerebellar association in dengue contamination is not plainly characterized. We report a patient of dengue fever who gave cerebellar condition with sinus bradycardia as the underlying indication.


Discussion: Dengue fever can show with neurological highlights going from 0.5% to 21% of in-clinic cases. In various case reports, patients with dengue cerebellar condition all recuperate suddenly without lasting neurological sequelae. Five out of the six known cases, including that of our patient had average neuroimaging discoveries. The specific pathology of neurological conditions in dengue fever are yet to be set up. Dengue is the main arthropod-borne viral disease of people. Clinical introduction of dengue fever went from mellow clinical febrile disease to extreme hazardous conditions. Numerous surprising neurological signs have been accounted for with dengue fever. These incorporate aseptic meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, intracranial discharge, and mono/polyneuropathies. Here, we report a case who gave cerebellar condition with sinus bradycardia as the underlying appearance of dengue fever. In any case, because of the positive serum Immunoglobulin M (IgM) of the subjects, we can reason that this might be invulnerable intervened. Another conceivable pathology is the immediate attack of the infection. Nonetheless, the inclination for the cerebellum is not yet known.


Conclusion: Physicians should be made mindful of such entanglements as dengue is plague in our setting. Since dengue causes a hyper-coagulable state with a higher danger for stroke, stroke should even now be precluded by neuroimaging.
