Dengue Fever (DF) is rarely considered as a cause of acute hepatic failure and only a few case reports of acute hepatic failure and encephalopathy occurring in DF in adults are available. Here we report the case of a 23 year old previously healthy male who presented to the outpatient department with history of fever and chills since 2 days and 1 episode of hematuria. The patient was further investigated and was diagnosed as dengue positive, following a 2 days of hospital stay he developed altered sensorium. He was admitted and managed in the ICU with supportive care and platelet transfusion. Further investigations were suggestive of acute hepatic failure. With treatment he made a significant clinical and biochemical improvement and was discharged after 8 days of hospital stay.
