Pregnant women in dengue fever

CAN THO: Phan Thi Tuyet Mai, 31 years old, 38 weeks pregnant, hospitalized with severe dengue fever, the risk of death of both mother and child.

Last week, Ms. Mai was transferred to Can Tho Central General Hospital, had severe abdominal pain, fever on day 5, hemorrhage in many places on her body. Because the number of platelets dropped very badly, the patient was given an emergency unit of a decomposed platelet unit, then gave birth to a normal boy weighing 3.5 kg.

By dengue pathology, women with postpartum haemorrhage, poor uterine contraction, out 400 ml of blood. Doctors must perform emergency hysterectomy to save patients’ lives. A total of 13 patients received blood transfusion units and platelets.

Currently the health of mother and child better, are being treated at the hospital.

According to Dr. Nguyen Thi Linh Ha, dengue fever in pregnant women is often more difficult to diagnose than normal people because the blood dilution during pregnancy obscures the blood concentration. In addition, thrombocytopenia, elevated liver enzymes and subcutaneous hemorrhages sometimes fool the doctor with a HELLP syndrome (a complication of pre-eclampsia). The symptoms of the two diseases are quite similar, only the difference is dengue with fever, and HELLP has hypertension.

Dengue dengue patients in pregnant women can be life-threatening for mothers and children.
