Abstract

Kolkata, India is endemic for mosquito borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya and malaria. For monitoring, altogether 252 serum samples of fever cases were examined for dengue specific NS1 antigen and IgM and IgG antibodies and chikungunya specific IgM antibody. Their blood samples were also tested for malarial parasites. Out of 252 cases, 15 (5.95%), 16 (6.34%) and 18 (7.13%) were infected with dengue, chikungunya and malaria respectively. Amongst 15 dengue cases 10 (3.96%) were positive for both dengue IgM and IgG antibodies and 5 (1.98%) for NS1 antigen. Out of 18 malaria victims 14 (5.55%) and 4 (1.58%) were positive for Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum respectively. During the present study, one case of concurrent infections of dengue and chikungunya and another case of concurrent infections of dengue, chikungunya and falciparum malaria were detected. Detail case report of the later has been described. This is the first ever report of concurrent infections of dengue, chikungunya and malaria.
