Both the incidence and number of epidemic areas have increased significantly in recent years, particularly in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas, making DF a major emerging infectious disease. DF presents with a wide clinical spectrum, ranging from a self‐limiting infection (85‐90% of cases) to severe dengue diseases (SDD), which occurs in approximately 5% of cases, and includes both dengue shock syndrome (DSS) and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF). There is no effective vaccine for the prevention of dengue infection, nor are there any antiviral agents or immune modulators that can reduce its mortality. However, with good supportive medical care, mortality rates of less than 1% can be achieved, even with the inclusion of DSS cases. Therefore, diagnostic indicators are important to ensure early SDD recognition. Published studies have reported
