ABSTRACT: The incidence of dengue has grown dramatically around the world in recent decades. A vast majority of cases are asymptomatic or mild and self-managed, and hence the actual numbers of dengue cases are under-reported.

All the patients presenting with history of fever, body aches were included in this study. A total of 300 patients were included in this study. All the patients were labelled as suspected. Out of three hundred, one hundred and fifty-eight were labelled as probable. After following up, one hundred and one patients were labelled as dengue confirm patient.
