Hemorrhagic complications of varying severity are described in dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome. Although thrombocytopenia and hemorrhage are the much hyped complications, there is little literature on the thrombotic complications of dengue. We report a case of a 39-year-old lady who developed pulmonary thromboembolism during the first week of the illness with successful clinical outcome. The probable mechanisms of thrombosis and the treatment dilemma posed during the management of the patient are discussed. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
