Neurological manifestations after dengue are not very common and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) following dengue infections is still more infrequent. Few cases have been documented in literature. Characteristic clinical presentation and typical lesions of ADEM on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain along with serologic positivity for dengue usually confirms the diagnosis. The author reports a case of ADEM which developed as a neurological complication of dengue.
