Abstract

Background Dengue is an infectious mosquito-borne disease in India and is caused by a virus named as dengue virus. It is also known as break bone fever, is a painful and sometimes fatal viral disease characterized by headache, skin rash and debilitating muscle and joint pains. In India, dengue is becoming a public health problem. The predominant dengue virus serotypes during the last few years have been DENV-2 and DENV-3. There is no specific antiviral treatment currently available for dengue fever. Time to time many dengue cases treated with homoeopathic medicine successfully have been reported.

Methodology Demographic data, symptoms and laboratory findings were collected from patients with confirmed dengue infections treated from outpatient department and inpatient department of Dr. D. P. R. Central Research Institute for Homoeopathy, Noida, from September 2015 to October 2015.

Results Four dengue infected patients were treated successfully by homoeopathic medicine Eupatorium perfoliatum without any complication.

Conclusion Dengue requires early diagnosis and treatment. Dengue can be managed with homoeopathy. Further studies are mandatory as evidence-based data in the management of dengue are sparse.
