Hi Airia .. Thank you for the question.

From the blood lab results that you give, what has decreased is the platelet value. Platelets help in the blood clotting process so that they also play a role in preventing bleeding. The normal value of platelets in the blood is 150,000-450,000 / microLiter of blood. Low platelets in medical language is called thrombocytopenia. Thrombocytopenia can be caused by:

Viral infections such as dengue fever, chicken pox Blood disorders such as aplastic anemia, ITP, blood cancer due to consumption of certain drugs such as anti-seizure drugs, heparin Post chemotherapy Other blood lab results are negative IgG IgM. Is the IgG IgM test assessed for dengue fever? The examination of dengue fever IgG and IgM is a follow-up examination that can be used to diagnose dengue fever other than by examining platelets. If the result is negative, it can be said that there is no dengue fever infection in acute or chronic conditions.

Meanwhile, the results of the widal typhus examination performed on the first examination showed an increase but not high. These results are found in endemic areas such as Indonesia because of the large amount of exposure to Salmonella bacteria. Doctors can do a further examination of typhus if there is a suspicion of typhoid infection.

Your nephew's condition can be caused by a viral infection, but it is necessary to do further examination and be adjusted to the symptoms and results of direct physical examination. You can check with your nephew to a pediatrician to get an examination directly. In addition, keep providing nutritious food, adequate children's water needs, avoid fatigue, and keep the food consumed by children clean.
