Abstract

Dengue virus is endemic in Bangladesh. It is known to cause thrombocytopenia through direct infection of bone marrow megakaryocytes, but very rarely it may also cause tri-linear marrow suppression leading to secondary aplastic anaemia. This article describes dengue associated aplastic anaemia in a child in Dhaka and discusses the treatment and outcome of previously reported paediatric cases of dengue-associated aplastic anaemia all around the world.
