Case Report

Abstract: Dengue fever is currently the most important human viral mosquito-borne infection of public health significance, with millions of infections each year occurring worldwide. Dengue fever can present with multiorgan involvement. Renal involvement with dengue fever is rare, with a few reported cases worldwide. We report the first case, to our knowledge, of a mixed picture of nephritic-range proteinuria–microscopic hematuria after dengue hemorrhagic fever, which completely recovered, with recovery from the dengue hemorrhagic fever.
