Abstract: 41 dengue patients, 22 girls and 19 boys were recruited in the study. The mean age was 9.68 years. There were 12 (29.3 %) cases of dengue fever (DF) and 29 (70.7 %) cases of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). DD was more significantly present in the DHF group (87 %) than in the DF group (13%) (P<0.03). The sensitivity and specificity of DD in predicting severe dengue infection (DHF) were 90% and 67 %, respectively. Sequential analysis of DD showed higher levels at all stages of dengue infection. It correlated with the disease severity. Conclusion: Semiquantitative DD assay measurements in children suffering from dengue infection significantly correlated with dengue severity.
