Abstract

FERNANDES, Ana Isabel Vieira et al. Cardiac tamponade in a patient with severe dengue fever. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.5, pp.701-705. ISSN 0037-8682.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0361-2016.

A 26-year-old postpartum female presented with symptoms characteristic of dengue fever on the 16th day of puerperium. On the third day of the illness, the patient presented a clinical picture consistent with shock. Tests determined primary infection with dengue virus serotype 2. Cardiac tamponade was confirmed by echocardiography. This rare manifestation is described in a patient without any associated comorbidity.

Keywords : Dengue; Severe dengue; Cardiac tamponade.
