Resumen

ARTEAGA-LIVIAS, Kovy et al. Dengue in a newborn. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.5, pp.494-498. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182017000500494.

Dengue is the disease transmitted by arthropods of major importance in public health; however its presence in the neonatal stage is poorly studied, with few cases described worldwide. We present the case report of a neonate who started illness at 12 days of age, characterized by fever and irritability. He was hospitalized for suspicion of neonatal sepsis; later he presented thrombocytopenia and due the antecedent of his mother with diagnosis of dengue after childbirth, dengue tests were obtained in the neonate, resulting positive, then support treatment and fluid treatment is performed, with subsequent recovery. Dengue in the neonatal stage should always be suspected in areas where the disease is endemic and management guides should be proposed.

Palabras clave : Dengue; newborn; infectious disease vertical transmission.
