Infectious Diseases >> Dengue

Treatment

 Several dengue vaccines are being developed, but none is likely to be licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the next few years.

Because Dengue hemorrhagic fever is caused by a virus for which there is no known cure or vaccine, the only treatment is to treat the symptoms.

  • Rehydration with intravenous (IV) fluids is often necessary to treat dehydration.

  • IV fluids and electrolytes are also used to correct electrolyte imbalance.

  • A transfusion of fresh blood or platelets can correct bleeding problems.
