Abstract Encephalopathy associated with dengue fever is considered to be a rare condition in adults. We describe a patient with a primary dengue infection who, in the absence of overt signs of dengue shock syndrome, died due to progressive cerebral oedema. Autopsy findings demonstrated loss of integrity of cerebral vascular endothelium and involvement of complement activation.
