Identifying a severe case of eosinophilia in a dengue patient can be challenging. This new study looks at the incidence of severe eosinophilia in patients with dengue fever. Researchers examined secondary data from the State Epidemiological Surveillance Service. The study included only cases with bleeding and platelet counts less than 100 x 109/L. The authors obtained additional information from medical records. Anemia was defined as a hemoglobin level of 13.0 g/dL in males and a hematocrit of 40% in females. A high eosinophil count was defined as a sign of eosinophilia, and anemia was classified as the absence of either.
Thrombocytopenia is common in dengue patients, and a high platelet count can predict the severity of hemorrhagic manifestations. A high platelet count is useful for monitoring disease progression and predicting prognosis. Most cases in this study showed a raised hematocrit, basophilia, and monocytosis. The study also suggests a correlation between these two clinical parameters, and may suggest an early diagnosis of severe eosinophilia in a suspected dengue patient.
Interestingly, while a low platelet count is a sign of anemia, severe eosinophilia in a dengue patient can have serious consequences. For example, the presence of serous thrombocytopenia and severe eosinophilia may result in a worse prognosis than the usual case of eosinophilia.
In this study, the patients with severe eosinophilia had a hematocrit of less than 10 g/dL, while those with a hemoglobin level of 15 g/dl were considered to have severe eosinophilia. Similarly, the numbers of lymphocytes and eosinophils were significantly higher in patients with a previous history of dengue.
This study has several objectives. First, the researchers investigated the value of a complete blood count in determining a patient’s prognosis. The secondary objective was to observe the rate of recovery of white blood cells and platelets in patients with severe eosinophilia. The results of the study were similar to those published in the literature. The authors concluded that “severe eosinophilia should be further studied in a dengue patient with other factors in the case.
The pattern of clinical and laboratory criteria for severe eosinophilia in a dengue patient is similar to that of patients with other protozoan diseases. However, there is one notable exception. Among these is eosinophilia in patients with acute schistosomiasis, which occurs when the patient’s immune system becomes over-stressed or aplastic anemia is present.
The incidence of severe eosinophilia in a dengue patient was determined in a study that looked at cases of the disease in Brazil. The study found that dengue patients with severe eosinophilia had a higher rate of thrombocytopenia than those with normal hemoglobin levels. While severe eosinophilia may be indicative of a comorbidity, it is important to note that there is no standard treatment for the condition.
