Abstract

A 50-year-old male presented to us with features of diabetic ketoacidosis which was managed with adequate hydration and insulin therapy. His routine laboratory investigation revealed transaminitis, acute kidney injury and pancytopenia. Further evaluation for hematological and biochemical derangements uncovered positive dengue test (NS1 antigen and polymerase chain reaction assay). Patient distinctively reported no history of fever and remained afebrile during the course of illness. We report this case to highlight the possibility of afebrile dengue in endemic areas.
