A case of vertical transmission of dengue infection in the perinatal period is reported. The mother, a term pregnancy, had acute dengue the day before admission. The infant was born at term and developed fever on the fifth day of life which lasted for 5 days. No bleeding or plasma leakage was detected during the course of fever in infant or mother. A liver function test showed elevated SGOT and SGPT in the infant. The infant developed a convalescent rash on day 5 of the fever. The diagnosis of secondary dengue hemorrhagic fever in the mother was confirmed by serology and pri- mary dengue infection in the infant was confirmed by serology and serotyped as dengue type 2 by PCR. The clinical course and management of mothers and infants with perinatal dengue infection are reviewed
