Abstract
Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate role of gall bladder wall thickening in predicting dengue haemorrhagic fever before it’s onset.
Material and Methods: Abdominal ultrasound was done for all study participants on admission and during treatment via ultrasound machine (GE LOGIQ P9). Ultrasound was done on an empty stomach (fasting for eight hours or more). This investigation aimed to detect plasma leakage in the form of ascites, pleural effusion, and edematous gall bladder wall and also to detect any visceromegaly.
Conclusion: Gallbladder wall thickening (GBWT) can be used as an early predictor as well as an important prognostic sign for severe dengue infection and dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) especially during an epidemic.
