Akash Babu*, Aneetta Tom Mattom and Cijo George

ABSTRACT

Dengue is one of the most important viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes to human. Thrombocytopenia is the main complication of the dengue fever. The main reason for the thrombocytopenia in dengue fever is due to impaired thrombopoiesis and peripheral platelet destruction. Dengue patients with platelet count less than 1,00,000 cell/mm3 was considered as having thrombocytopenia. The prevalence of thrombocytopenia was found to be 48% in the study. Out of 173 patients, 100 (57.8%) patients were administered with Caripill. To identify the efficacy of caripill, we analyzed the platelet count before and after administering the caripill and noticed a gradual hike in platelet count after administering of caripill. There was a mean change of 320,80cells/mm3 and the significance (p-value) is less than 0.001, we can conclude that the average improvement in the platelet count, is significant. So there is a highly significant effect of Caripill administration on platelet count and it can be helpful in preventing the complication associated with the dengue infection.

Keywords: Dengue Fever, Platelet count, Thrombocytopenia, Caripill.
