Dengue fever is a major cause of illness and death worldwide. There are currently no licensed vaccines or specific therapeutics, and substantial vector control efforts have not stopped its rapid emergence and global spread. The study aims to  bringing to light the changing epidemiological pattern of dengue and analyze platelet count. The retrospective analysis of the data of laboratory confirmed  dengue cases from Jan 2015 to Jun 2016 was done to study epidemiological pattern and analysis platelet count. Total 51 cases were studied. Male to female ratio was 1.7:1.The 74% cases were below 20 years of age. The 43% of cases presented in hospital within 3 days of onset of illness for seeking treatment & 70% cases had platelet count less than 1,00,000/cumm. Dengue affects male younger population predominantly. Symptoms are so alarming that majority of dengue cases seek treatment early in the course of disease within 3-5 days and majority reveals platelet count less than 1,00,000/cumm

Keywords: Dengue, epidemiology, platelet count. Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus
