Neurological manifestation is uncommon in dengue infection. The pathogenesis of central nervous system involvement is controversial. We report a rare case of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in classic dengue, with isolation of serotype 3 in liquor. This condition was associated with significant structural damage detected by magnetic resonance.
