Prognosis of Dengue fever


About prognosis: The 'prognosis' of Dengue fever usually refers to the likely outcome of Dengue fever. The prognosis of Dengue fever may include the duration of Dengue fever, chances of complications of Dengue fever, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Dengue fever, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Dengue fever. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.

Duration of Dengue fever: 2 weeks typically but sometimes months before weakness or joint pains disappear.
Duration of Dengue fever: The acute phase of up to 1 week is followed by a 1- to 2-week period of convalescence which is characterized by weakness, malaise, and anorexia.2
