India is one of the seven identified countries in the South-East Asia region regularly reporting incidence of DF/DHF outbreaks and may soon transform into a major niche for dengue infection in the near future. The first confirmed report of dengue infection in India dates back to 1940s, and since then more and more new states have been reporting the disease which mostly strikes in epidemic proportions often inflicting heavy morbidity and mortality, in both urban and rural environments. Hence based on the above findings the present study was planned for Assessment of Different Factors Responsible for the Prevalence of Dengue in Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital, Bhagalpur, Bihar. The present study was planned in Department of Internal Medicine, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital, Bhagalpur, Bihar, India. Total 50 cases of the dengue diagnosed were enrolled and evaluated in the present study. All probable cases that had high grade fever, lymphadenopathy, hepatomegaly, features of shock or haemorrhage, and so forth and were admitted with provisional diagnosis of dengue fever. The data generated from the present study concluded that Dengue fever cannot just be simply considered as a viral infection, especially in a scenario where so many atypical presentations are seen. There are so many aspects which are manifested differently which when noticed promptly can help in reducing complications of DHF and DSS. Lastly use of mosquito control measures should not be underestimated because it forms the baseline of the treatment in in urban as well as rural population. Early diagnosis and careful management with proper fluid administration will help in reducing the mortality associated with dengue shock syndrome and haemorrhagic fever. Platelet transfusions has a little role in the management of dengue patients.
