The authors report a Japanese boy with severe pandemic influenza A(H1N1) 2009-associated pneumonia and deteriorating oxygenation. He dramatically recovered after the use of Airway Pressure Release Ventilation (APRV) mode. There was no improvement by using any conventional ventilation, however, APRV immediately led to an improvement of his clinical symptoms and laboratory findings.

<![CDATA[Persistent thrombocytopenia following dengue shock syndrome]]>

Though thrombocytopenia is one of the hallmarks of dengue hemorrhagic fever/ dengue shock syndrome, persistence of the same is rare. We report an 11 year-old child with dengue shock syndrome, who developed persistent thrombocytopenia. The possible mechanisms are discussed.

<![CDATA[Dengue Shock Syndrome with Two Atypical Complications]]>

The authors present 2 cases of dengue shock syndrome with unusual complications. In the first case, a 14-y-old boy with dengue shock syndrome who required aggressive fluid resuscitation, developed abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Patient developed severe shock, increased ventilator requirement and oliguria as a consequence of ACS. Patient responded well to abdominal paracentesis draining 2.7 l of fluid and made rapid recovery. In the second case, 8-y-old girl was treated for dengue shock syndrome, including mechanical ventilation for ARDS. In the second wk of illness, she developed severe neurological manifestations including frequent episodes of convulsions, hallucinations and altered sensorium. She was diagnosed to have acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis from CT brain findings. She responded well to pulse steroid therapy with complete neurological recovery.
