A tip-off to identification of leptospirosis is conjunctival suffusion (dilatation of conjunctival vessels without purulent exudate), which occurs frequently in leptospirosis, but is uncommon in other infectious diseases. Shanbag P. Clinical manifestations of dengue and leptospirosis in children in Mumbai: an observational study. Infection. Conclusions: Fever associated with headache, retroorbital pain, erythematous morbilliform rash, conjunctival suffusion and itching in palms and soles along with thrombocytopenia, leucopenia, elevated liver transaminases should prompt a clinician on the possibility of dengue infection
Conjunctival suffusion (eg, leptospirosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever) limits diagnostic possibilities, as does a truncal rash (eg, typhus) Fever in a returning traveler from tropical areas often presents a diagnostic problem for clinicians. Our patient presented with severe arthralgias and myalgias and had a camelback/saddleback fever pattern accompanied by relative bradycardia, which was a clue to the diagnosis. He had conjunctival suffusion and the truncal rash, but adenopathy. Some degree of conjunctival suffusion is common in people with a high temperature. This is often prominent in measles, rubella, some adenovirus infections and in leptospirosis Fever associated with headache, retroorbital pain, erythematous morbilliform rash, conjunctival suffusion and itching in palms and soles along with thrombocytopenia, leucopenia, elevated liver transaminases should prompt a clinician on the possibility of dengue infection. Platelet transfusions have little role in management of dengue patients
In view of fever for one week, along with bilateral conjunctival suffusion in a varicella child, we had the suspicion of dengue illness. Her platelets decreased over two days after admission and were persistently less than 50000/mm 3 for three days No dehydration, conjunctival suffusion, lip or tongue erythema, edema, mucocutaneous bleed, abdominal tenderness, hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice, ascites, or lymphadenopathy could be appreciated. The platelet count was 211 × 10 9 /L; hematocrit was 40 %, with normal blood pressure. IgM anti-dengue antibodies and Non-structural antigen 1 (NS1. . (6), 7In our study classical symptoms were not commonly seen as only 9% had joint pain and 21% had headache, myalgia and conjunctival suffusion.
Conjunctival suffusion and myalgias are considered pathognomonic of leptospirosis. Serology most commonly confirms the clinical diagnosis. (2) Dengue fever: can cause malaise, headache (especially in the retro-orbital area), and muscle aches. The diagnosis is established clinically and confirmed with serology CLASSIC DENGUE FEVER is characterized by the abrupt onset of fever, malaise, headache, retrobulbar pain which worsens on eye movements, conjunctival suffusion and severe backache, which is a prominent symptom. Lymphadenopathy petechiae on the soft palate and skin rashes may also occur. The rash is transient and morbilliform Dengue virus serovars are widespread in the tropics and have caused massive outbreaks, conjunctival suffusion (red eyes) or bilateral non-purulent conjunctivitis (eye inflammation without pus)with general non-specific symptoms such as myalgia (muscle aches), astheni • Common clinical manifestations include conjunctival suffusion, headache, and myalgias. vomiting, and myalgias, with symptoms that can suggest dengue, giving rise to diagnostic delay (56). Muscle pain is a significant feature of leptospiral infection and involves the calves, abdomen, and back. Patients usually have intense headache and.
Dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever were initially suspected as the cause of the outbreak but were ruled out in Nicaragua and at CDC by serologic tests and polymerase chain reaction assays of serum specimens. abdominal pain, and conjunctival suffusion; more severe manifestations include renal failure, jaundice, meningitis, hypotension. Symptoms are easily confused with other common diseases in the tropics, such as dengue and other hemorrhagic fevers. The diagnosis of leptospirosis should be considered in any patient presenting with an abrupt onset of fever, chills, conjunctival suffusion, headache, myalgia and jaundice Sub-conjunctival hemorrhage, scleral icterus, circum-corneal conjunctival congestion, chemosis, conjunctival suffusion Differential Diagnoses. The following list includes the different diagnoses that should be taken into consideration for leptospirosis. Dengue Fever; Brucellosis; Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome; Hepatitis A; Malari Cordifolia) in dengue fever Dr. Dattatraya L Shinde Abstract 25 years female patient presented with complaints of high grade fever (103o F) with chills, cold, headache, backache, hyperacidity and ache in the extremities with break bone accompanied by pharyngitis, conjunctival suffusion and generali zed weakness since 3-4 days admitted for 11days Dengue fever. Differntiating Signs/Symptoms. Presenting signs and symptoms similar to leptospirosis, except conjunctival suffusion, which is not present in dengue fever. Dengue fever does not present in 2 phases.

Patients with dengue will have a history of living in, or recent travel to, a region where the disease is endemic. The incubation period is 3-14 days (average, 4-7 days); symptoms that begin more than 2 weeks after a person departs from an endemic area are probably not due to dengue. Many patients experience a prodrome of chills, erythematous. Dengue fever. SIGNS / SYMPTOMS. INVESTIGATIONS. SIGNS / SYMPTOMS. Presenting signs and symptoms similar to leptospirosis, except conjunctival suffusion, which is not present in dengue fever. Dengue fever does not present in 2 phases. INVESTIGATIONS. Positive serologic test will confirm diagnosis and differentiate among etiologic agents Typical symptoms for dengue are frontal headache, retro-orbital pain, muscle and joint pain, and rash, while painful eyes, conjunctival suffusion, and severe muscle pain (often beginning in the calf) are symptoms more commonly ascribed to leptospirosis. 1,2 From 1955 to 1994, the total annual number of reported cases of leptospirosis in the.
Dengue fever is the most common arthropod-born viral infection in humans: Conjunctival suffusion would be a sign that favors Leptospirosis while a skin rash would orient more towards DF. The patient presentation was dominated with the above mentioned elements without a rash or conjunctival suffusion. The initial laboratory investigations. Hawaii. Numerous mosquito bites.

Pulmonary symptoms. Affected individuals can present with an extensive spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from subclinical illness in approximately 90% of cases to renal and hepatic failure and pulmonary hemorrhages Conjunctival suffusion, when it occurs, is one of the most reliable distinguishing features since it rarely occurs with any infectious illness other than leptospirosis. Malaria, dengue, and chikungunya share some common clinical features and similar endemic patterns with leptospirosis [ 65 ]
Conjunctival suffusion (dilation of the conjunctival vessels without exudate) is a classic sign of leptospirosis. Rash is rare, and suggests an alternative diagnosis such as Dengue or Chikunguna. Leptospirosis is classically biphasic. The acute febrile illness will usually resolve after about 1 week Exam: VS T 38.4C, P 110, RR 18, BP 130/80 mm Hg. Height and weight are at the 50th percentile. He is alert in no acute distress. He is noted to have a moderate conjunctival suffusion (redness of the conjunctiva), with scleral icterus. His pharynx is injected, but his tonsils are not enlarged.

It presents with abrupt onset of high fever with chills, generalized aching of muscles and joints, intense headache, ocular pain or pain behind the eyes, conjunctival suffusion and severe back ache
The diagnosis of dengue was confirmed by a positive IgM antibody capture ELISA test. Clinical features in the leptospirosis and leptospirosis-negative groups, and dengue and dengue-negative groups were analysed. Of 90 children screened, 15 (16.7 per cent) had leptospirosis. namely conjunctival suffusion (p = 0.007), haemorrhage (p = 0.020),. Membedakan Demam Berdarah Dengue (DBD) vs Leptospirosis Membedakan DBD vs Leptospirosis bisa dengan pendekatan klinis dan laboratoris. Meskipun saya lebih suka menggunakan pendekatan laboratoris (karena lebih sederhana), namun tetap saja kita harus tahu pendekatan klinis terlebih dahulu Dengue fever is an infectious disease carried by mosquitoes and caused by any of four related dengue viruses. This disease used to be called break -bone fever because it sometimes causes severe joint and muscle pain that feels like bones are breaking, hence the name. (Conjunctival suffusion). When the eyes were tested papillary. clubbing and conjunctival suffusion. Oxygen saturation was 75% in all four limbs. After stabilization, examination revealed normal Sl and single S2. There was a grade 3 ejection systolic murmur at left upper parasternal border. (i) What is the likely diagnosis ? Justify. (ii) Outline the principles of management of acute episode of extrem An acute febrile illness with cerebellar dysfunction and peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy was considered. Considering his fever, headache, conjunctival suffusion, liver dysfunction, thrombocytopenia and neurological dysfunction, leptospirosis, dengue and scrub typhus were the main differentials
A 48 -year -old female, resident of Kasargod, rural area in Dakshina Kannada,India, was admitted with complaints of high grade fever with chills, epigastric pain and cough with expectoration since 2 weeks and oliguria since 2 days. General examination revealed fever, icterus, conjunctival suffusion, pedal edema and facial puffiness The spectrum of leptospiral disease is broad and may include fever, headache, chills, myalgia, abdominal pain, and conjunctival suffusion; more severe manifestations include renal failure, jaundice, meningitis, hypotension, hemorrhage, and/or hemorrhagic pneumonitis (4). Severe pulmonary symptoms and pulmonary hemorrhage have not been.
Types of leptospirosis. In the first type, there is no jaundice. That is why it is termed Anicteric. They may have all other symptoms like headache, body ache, skin rash, and other features as shown in the picture of signs and symptoms above. In the Icteric type, the patient has severe jaundice and other parts of the body get involved Leptospirosis, one of the most important of neglected tropical diseases, is a common zoonosis in the tropics. Recent reports have demonstrated that pulmonary haemorrhage is one of the fatal complications of severe leptospirosis. In this report, we present a case of leptospirosis manifested with severe pulmonary haemorrhagic syndrome successfully treated with venovenous extracorporeal membrane. Synonyms for suffusion in Free Thesaurus. Antonyms for suffusion. 2 synonyms for suffusion: permeation, pervasion. What are synonyms for suffusion After an incubation period of two to 30 days (usually five to 14 days), leptospirosis manifests as a biphasic illness with an acute/bacteraemic phase (seven to 10 days from symptom onset), characterised by sudden onset of fever, myalgia and headache. 2 Calf tenderness and conjunctival suffusion are characteristic but not always present. Other. The diagnosis of dengue was confirmed by a positive IgM antibody capture ELISA test. Clinical features in the leptospirosis and leptospirosis-negative groups, and dengue and dengue-negative groups were analysed. Of 90 children screened, 15 (16.7 per cent) had leptospirosis. namely conjunctival suffusion (p=0.007), haemorrhage (p=0.020.
Leptospira/Leptospirosis. Leptospira is a spiral or question mark-shaped, gram-negative spirochete with hook-shaped ends. The disease, leptospirosis, is a zoonosis, infecting animals. Rodents are the most important reservoir. Bacteria shed in the urine of rodents and other animals can be transmitted to humans via contaminated water Conjunctival suffusion and muscle tenderness, most notable in the calf and lumbar areas, are the most distinguishing physical findings. The patient required three haemodialysis treatments, his acute renal failure resolved and he continued on his travels. 1 Conjunctival suffusion. Journal. Nephrology - Wiley. Published: Jan 1, 201 Leptospirosis. is a. zoonotic disease. caused by gram-negative Leptospira bacteria. Direct transmission to humans occurs when broken skin and. mucous membranes. come into contact with the urine of infected animals such as rodents. The early phase of the disease is mild and characterized by nonspecific symptoms (e.g., fever, headache, and Leptospirosis is a zoonosis caused by the spirochete, Leptospira interrogans. While most cases of leptospirosis are mild to moderate, the course may be complicated by multiorgan dysfunction. We present a rare case of leptospirosis with acute myocarditis, pancreatitis, polyarthritis, mononeuritis multiplex and severe vasculitis with necrosis of the extremities Temp 39.5°C. FiO 2 = 50% via HFNP at 60L/min. (albumin is 20) In summary, The acid-base findings are: There is a widened A-a gradient (236, in case you are wondering; PF around 158) There is an acidaemia. There is a metabolic acidosis (SBE -11.2
Acute liver failure (ALF) is an infrequent, unpredictable clinical sequela of acute liver injury (ALI) in an individual without any previous history of liver disease and is associated with a mortality rate of 50% to 75%. 1 Encephalopathy subsequent to ALI (icterus) is the usual presentation in ALF, and coagulopathy (international normalized. Dengue was the most common of the three significant arthropodborne viruses presenting initially as FUO. It is usually acquired by a soldier residing in a large base encampment or urban area rather than in the jungle because the vector, the Aedes mosquito, is basically an urban dweller. Conjunctival suffusion is an important sign and is. dengue positive (either positive NS1 antigen or positive IgM antibody by ELISA method were Conjunctival congestion 13 13% Hemorrhagic manifestations 58 58% The above table shows that in the current study, fever is the most common clinical feature in dengue (100%) followed (22%).Other manifestations are conjunctival suffusion(13%) and. see more details and conjunctival suffusion. Eighty-one children had dengue. All patients responded well to the treatment and were released to go home.

In 2007 the first large outbreak in humans conjunctival suffusion (red eyes) or bilateral non- purulent conjunctivitis (eye inflammation without pus)with general non- specific symptoms such as myalgia (muscle aches), asthenia (weak and tired) and headaches Mortality rate was 0.77%. CONCLUSIONS:Fever associated with headache, retroorbital pain, erythematous morbilliform rash, conjunctival suffusion and itching in palms and soles along with thrombocytopenia, leucopenia, elevated liver transaminases should prompt a clinician on the possibility of dengue infection
Conjunctival suffusion and muscle tenderness especially in the lumbar areas and calves. Dengue, concurrent leptospirosis may occur since it shares similar environmental risk factors. It may be. Dengue Fever - Clinical and Laboratory Parameters Associated with Complications Dengue Bulletin - Vol 27, 2003 109 Introduction Dengue fever (DF) is the commonest of the arboviral infections in humans(1). The global incidence of DF dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF) has increased dramatically in recent decades(1,2). In India, epidemics ar symptoms similar to such diseases as dengue, malaria, typhoid, influenza, thus laboratory methods are required for early detection to facilitate appropriate treatment of patients. The diagnosis of leptospirosis should be considered in any patient presenting with an abrupt onset of fever, chills, conjunctival suffusion, headache, myalgia, and. Dengue is the most widely distributed mosquito-borne viral infection of humans and is emerging as a major burden on global public health. A recent study has estimated that 100 million clinically apparent dengue infections occur worldwide each year, with a further 300 million asymptomatic infections ().Typically dengue manifests as a relatively mild self-limited febrile illness characterized by. Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika Morbiliform rash, fever, headache, malaise, conjunctival suffusion and myalgias (adults). Abdominal pain (children). Mortality up to 40% if untreated
-Suffusion -dilation of the conjunctival vasculature, subconjuctival haemorrhage, uveitis -Icterus scleral with conjunctival suffusion-pathognomic of Weils disease •GI -Jaundice not associated with hepatocellular necrosis. Bilirubin, ALT, AST will normalise •Renal -Acute tubular necrosis (direct leptospire injury The presence of conjunctival suffusion (redness of the conjunctiva of the eye without discharge) can help distinguish leptospirosis from other infectious diseases. In approximately 90% of cases, the disease follows a biphasic course in which an initial acute symptomatic phase lasting 5-7 days is followed by immune phase during which.
The maculopapular non-confluent rash over the trunk. No dehy- reported clinical cases of dengue with KD include a 10-y- dration, conjunctival suffusion, lip or tongue erythema, ede- old boy from Thailand , a 11-mo-old Thai female infant ma, mucocutaneous bleed, abdominal tenderness,  and an 8-y-old boy from Chandigarh  Conjunctival suffusion is an eye finding occurring early in Weil's disease, Rash is rarely found in leptospirosis. When rash is found, other alternative diagnoses such as Dengue fever and Chikungunya fever should be considered. Dry cough is observed in 20% to 57% of people with leptospirosis. Thus, this clinical feature can mislead a. Conjunctival suffusion, a specific diagnostic sign for leptospirosis, was identified in only 21·8% of 326 cases during emergency-room triage. Of 136 interviewed cases, 57 (41·9%) reported a previous outpatient examination during which they received the diagnosis of dengue fever
