The role of immunoglobulins in viral hemorrhagic fevers
A 26 year old resident doctor of a
teaching hospital was referred for an opinion for Infectious Diseases. He had a
short history of illness, about four days of fever, rapidly evolving skin rash,
worsening breathlessness and low platelets (count of 7000). A diagnosis of
Dengue hemorrhagic fever was made. However, patient was on ventilator by day
five, had cardiac tamponade, tense ascites and large bilateral pleural
Based on a rapidly worsening
clinical condition, a decision to use immunoglobulins was taken after
discussing risk with patients’ family. By day three all parameters began to
show improvement and by day five he was significantly better. Patient was extubated
by day ten and discharged in additional seven days.
The role of immunoglobulins in
viral hemorrhagic fevers is clearly defined, though not as clear in dengue
hemorrhagic fever. This patient account is to illustrate that while there are
defined boundaries in practice, patients who have life threatening infection
should be assessed on an individual basis.
