Sushil Falodia, Arjun Vyas

Background: Over the past few years, atypical manifestations of dengue have been reported with multiple organ involvement. Method: We carried out a study to assess the Liver Function Test in dengue fever patients. Subjects were divided in two groups. Group I was involved 50 patients of dengue fever and group II was involved 50 healthy subjects of similar age group. Result: All the liver function tests were significantly more deranged in the patients group as compared to the Control group. Mean value of liver enzymes both SGOT and SGPT level increase more than ten folds than the control group. Total Bilirubin and Alkaline Phosphatase level were higher in dengue patients than the Control group. Conclusion: Hepatic dysfunction was present in dengue infection. The SGOT levels in dengue infection tend to be greater than the levels SGPT level. Key words: Dengue fever, Total Bilirubin, Serum Glutamic Oxaloacetic Transaminase (SGOT), Serum Glutamic Pyruvic Transaminase. (SGPT), Alkaline phosphatise (ALP)
