Dengue is the most rapidly spreading mosquito-borne viral disease in the world. We conducted a retrospective study know the role of prophylactic platelet transfusion and its misuse in dengue patients. A total of 110 dengue patients who have been platelet transfused were taken in the study. A total of 311 platelet concentrates were transfused, while 70 units of FFP were infused to 41 patients with DHF or DSS. Out of a total of 311 platelet concentrate 131(42.11%) units were prophylacticaly transfused to DF patients who did not manifest bleeding and they were considered as inappropriate platelet transfusion. The reason for platelet transfusion are not based on medical rationale, but as a result of an intense social pressure on the treating physicians by the patients and their relatives. More reasearh is require to address the role of prophylactic platelet transfusion in dengue fever.
