Question

One of the common symptoms observed in people infected with Dengue fever is:


  1. Significant decrease in RBC count

  2. Significant decrease in WBC count

  3. Significant decrease in platelets count

  4. Significant increase in platelets count


Solution

The correct option is C

Significant decrease in platelets count


Dengue virus, the main cause of dengue fever induces bone marrow suppression. Since bone marrow is the manufacturing centre of blood cells its suppression causes deficiency of blood cells leading to low platelet count. Anaemia and spontaneous severe bleeding are the other resultant factors of bone marrow suppression.
