The article presents a study which identifies the clinical association between the increased immunoglobulin (Ig) M and IgG titers and decreased platelet count in patients diagnosed with dengue hemorrhagic fever. The study has utilized 94 positive cases of dengue fever as confirmed through enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). It reveals that raised IgM and IgG titers and the massive drop of platelet count might be due to exaggerated immune response.
