    Abstract

    Objective: To estimate the incidence of dengue-induced organ failure form 2010-2015 in Malaysia. Methods: Data were extracted from the Malaysian Registry of Intensive Care published in June 2016. Analysis of proportions was carried out using StatsDirect software. Binary data for the outcomes available from the included studies were analyzed using StatsDirect software, using random effect model. Results: It is noteworthy that there was a drop in all complications among dengue patients at 2011. Except in year 2011, 52% [0.52 (CI 95% 0.49-0.56)] of the patients with dengue developed hematological failure. Conclusions: The statistics indicate that dengue has increasingly led to cardiovascular, neurological, renal and hematological failure, as indicated from an increasing trend from year 2011-2015.
