ABSTRACT
We describe 2 patients with autoimmune thrombocytopenic disease who developed classic dengue fever associated with serious bleeding and extremely low platelet counts (1000 cells/mm[sup3] and 3000 cells/mm[sup3], respectively). Such patients should be properly advised as to the possibility that common dengue fever may substantially enhance their risk for hemorrhagic complications.
