Abstract

            A case report of dengue fever with hepatitis B and C was reported.  In Thailand, there are still only a few reports.  In most cases, only one type of hepatitis B or C have been reported.  From a review of the medical history data from the medical records, it was found that a 38-year-old male patient had a history of alcohol dependence, hypertension, and was infected with hepatitis B and C. The patient came to have wisdom teeth surgery.  His blood pressure was measured three times and the value was in the range of 180-190/110-125 mmHg. The dentist did not perform the wisdom tooth removal.  Then, the patient had a severe tremors, a headache, and was sent to a tropical medicine hospital and it was found that the patient had scurvy.  His blood pressure was 210/121 mm Hg. The laboratory test results were dengue NS1Ag positive, anti-dengue IgG and IgM positive. The hepatitis B virus test found that the virus did not multiply or multiply in small quantities. There was acidosis, blood present in the urine, a low platelet count, and abnormal liver function. The patient was taken to the intensive care unit with fluids and blood transfusion.​ The patient was hospitalized for five days until he recovered.
