Atypical skin manifestations of dengue fever in a child
Dengue fever is a severe flu-like illness that affects infants, children, adolescents, and adults and can have a wide variety of manifestations. Dengue fever can have varied skin manifestations including petechiae, purpura, and bleeding.

Published in the Indian Journal of Child Health, the authors report the case of an 18-month-old child who presented with atypical skin manifestations. The lesions were confused to be staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome initially.

The manifestations later turned out to be the skin manifestations of dengue fever, and the child got better with fluid resuscitation, skin care, and supportive management. This case report draws light toward the various other dermatological manifestations of dengue fever.
