A case of vertical transmission of dengue infection in the perinatal period is reported. The mother, a term pregnancy, had acute dengue the day before admission. The infant was born at term and developed fever on the fifth day of life which lasted for 5 days. No bleeding or plasma leakage was detected during the course of fever in infant or mother. A liver function test showed elevated SGOT and SGPT in the infant. The infant developed a convalescent rash on day 5 of the fever. The diagnosis of secondary dengue hemorrhagic fever in the mother was confirmed by serology and primary dengue infection in the infant was confirmed by serology and serotyped as dengue type 2 by PCR. The clinical course and management of mothers and infants with perinatal dengue infection are reviewed.
