Leukocytes In Patients With Dengue Fever?
want to ask. Why if leukocytes in DHF are normal or low? Not high even though I have dengue infection? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The number of leukocytes in patients with dengue fever tends to be normal or low. The low leukocytes are caused by the destruction and also the inhibition (inhibition) of the production of white blood cells in the bone marrow that are induced by viruses. Basically, not all infections will cause leukocytes to increase in number. This low level of leukocytes is quite common and does not only occur in dengue infection. Low leukocytes can also occur in other acute viral infections as well, for example influenza, rhinovirus, measles, rubella, varicella, EBV, and many more. Some types of bacterial and parasitic infections can also cause low leukocytes such as typhoid fever, shigella infection, tuberculosis, malaria, etc.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
