Dengue fever over the recent years has gained attention of not only the health care professionals and researchers, but also public at large and it is a major seasonal health care problem in the tropics and the developing countries. Mortality due to complications such as hemorrhage and shock is well-known and is a major concern for the physician. Neurological manifesations include myelitis and encephalitis have started to gain attention as they present with high mortality and morbidity. We report a case of dengue fever with predominant neurological manifestations of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). The patient presented with fever, vomiting, and altered sensorium of recent onset. On evaluation, the patient was positive for dengue serology and magnetic resonance imaging picture suggested ADEM.
