Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Early diagnosis of dengue has been made easier in recent years owing to the advancement in diagnostic technologies. The rapid non-structural protein 1 (NS1) test strip is widely used in many developed and developing regions at risk of dengue. Despite the relatively high specificity of this test, we recently encountered two cases of false-positive dengue NS1 antigen in patients with underlying hematological malignancies. We reviewed the literature for causes of false-positive dengue NS1.
