DUTTA, SR  e  SINGH, P. Detrimental orofacial manifestations of dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever-clinical case series, review of the causes, complications, and vaccine strategies. S. Afr. dent. j. [online]. 2021, vol.76, n.8, pp.457-464. ISSN 0375-1562.

INTRODUCTION: It is estimated that there are about 10% of cases that involve oral mucosa in patients with dengue hemorrhagic fever (HF), and even less number of cases in dengue fever (DF) has been reported. This leads to a lack of future investigation AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This review intends to enhance the understanding of the epidemiology, clinical features involving the oral manifestations, and treatment of dengue disease. DESIGN AND METHODS: Several search engines, including PubMed, World Health Organization (WHO), and Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) websites were utilized for the literature search using the terms dengue and dengue shock syndrome. RESULTS: Dengue is a major arthropod-borne viral disease of humans. Its presentation is protean and varies from an undifferentiated viral syndrome to viral HF and severe shock. The early diagnosis of the oral manifestations, hemorrhagic, or mucocutaneous, may lead to timely clinical evaluation of the patient with signs and symptoms suggestive of dengue viral infection. CONCLUSION: The specific therapy for dengue infections is still undiscovered. Proper care, including vector control and prevention of mosquito bites, may be beneficial. However, the role of dental professionals and general practitioners is important in identifying the oral manifestations of dengue viral infection and providing specific diagnosis and effective treatment to the patients.
