Abstract

COVID-19 is an ongoing pandemic with similar clinical manifestations to other infectious diseases. Until this day there is no exact guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19. This case report describes a dengue fever case in a patient with high risk of COVID-19 infection. Rapid detection of this disease helps patients to receive early treatment and also contain the spread of the disease. Due to similar initial symptoms and lab results, a nasopharyngeal swab is recommended on the fifth day of fever, due to high viral load on said days. Clear anamnesis and accurate interpretation of lab and radiologic modalities helps avoidance of unnecessary early medications for COVID-19
