Table 2 Proteinuria and platelet parameters 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

  DF
(N = 8)
DHF/DSS
(N = 25)
P value
Median (range) peak proteinuria in gm/mg 0.08 (0.06,0.15) 0.56 (0.13,6.08) < 0.001
Median (range) day of onset of proteinuria 1 6 (0, +28) 1 (-2, +3) 0.020
Median (range) day of peak proteinuria 2 6 (0, +28) 1 (0, +3) 0.107
Median (range) nadir platelet count 2 in 10 9 /L 74 (43,97) 33(11,103) < 0.001
Median (range) day of nadir platelet count 3 0 (-2,+2) 1(-1,+3) 0.204
Median (range) platelet count in 109/L at the
day of peak proteinuria
70 (43,118) 41(14,149) 0.019
Number of significant UPCR 4 0 24(96%)  
Number of non significant UPCR 4 8(100%) 1(4%)  
  1. 1Day of onset of proteinuria: Occurrence of proteinuria on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3," wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.
  2. 2Day of peak proteinuria: Occurrence of maximum proteinuria on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2 +3," wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.
  3. 3Day of nadir platelet count: Occurrence of lowest platelet level on the time scale "...-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3,...." wherein "0" corresponds to the day of defervescence.
  4. 4 X2 = 28.2, p < 0.005.
