Dengue fever presents with a wide spectrum of clinical presentation ranging from minor illness to dengue shock syndrome with multisystem involvement. We encountered a case of dengue in eleven year old girl without any prior illness who presented with fever of 15 days and sudden onset hemorrhagic rash with acute liver injury. She did not have very low platelet count but had prolonged prothrombin time since admission which remained abnormal for more than a week. Child was evaluated for possible occult liver disease or co-infections and no underlying abnormality was detected. This is unusual presentation of Dengue fever with probable direct effect on liver or immunologic phenomenon.
