This deadly disease is an infectious disease; also this dengue fever is referred by the name back bone fever. Dengue fever when worsen it can lead to the development of dengue hemorrhagic fever. This is highly fatal, so careful monitoring and immediate medical attention is must. Dengue infection is divided in to three levels, one is febrile level, second level is critical and the third level is the recovery stage.

The febrile condition in dengue fever is really tougher to diagnose, since after getting fever many think that dengue fever is just like ordinary fever.

That’s why dengue fever affected person needs an immediate blood transfusion, the platelet count in blood will also be lesser, also the blood vessels are damaged by this Arco virus.
