Dengue Fever Diagnosis and Pathological Tests:


1. Dengue NS1 antigen test:

Dengue NS1 antigen test should be done within 3 days of fever. If you are infected the test will detect the Dengue virus within 3 days. If the test is done after 3 days of fever then it may show a negative result.

2. Dengue IgG and IgM:

Dengue IgG and IgM test should be done in the 5th or 6th day of fever.

3. CBC, LFT, ECG, X-RAY of Chest:

If Dengue is confirmed then CBC test should be done in medical supervisions. If your doctor suggests you for LFT (Liver Function Test), ECG, X-RAY of the chest and other clinical tests, just do it immediately because, from Dengue shock syndrome or expanded dengue syndrome, develops organ failure easily.

Nowadays, dengue comes with new features like multi-organ failure such as liver failure, kidney failure, pleural effusion, Acute Respiratory Syndrome and other neurological syndromes.

4. Haematological Tests:
