Table 1 Characteristics of patients with dengue fever (DF) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF), including dengue shock syndrome (DSS)

From: Could peak proteinuria determine whether patient with dengue fever develop dengue hemorrhagic/dengue shock syndrome? - A prospective cohort study

  Dengue
(N = 8)
DHF/DSS
(N = 25)
P value
Mean (± SD) range in years 34 (12) 43 (11) 0.058
Median (range) number of days of illness prior to admission 6(3,9) 5(2,7) 0.190
Median (range) DDF 1 in days 6(0,10) 6(3,7) 0.789
Median (range) number of total days of illness 9(6,10) 9(7,12) 0.220
Median (range) platelet count in 10 9 /L at the day of peak proteinuria 70 (43,118) 41(14,149) 0.019
Median (range) of hematocrit in % during the peak of proteinuria 40.6 (38,48) 41.2 (32,48) 0.914
  1. 1DDF: day of defervescence from the onset of the illness
  2. 2The hematocrit is not significantly different due to aggressive intravenous hydration when the patients were admitted. Hydration affects the hematocrit values. The degree of intravenous hydration depends whether the patient has DF or DHF/DSS.
