Sir,

The case report on "Dengue infection and acute hypokalemic quadriparesis" is very interesting. [1] This condition is a rare dengue presentation and sporadically reported. [1],[2],[3],[4] However, it should be noted that there are several possible causes of acute hypokalemic quadriparesis and it could simply be a co-morbidity associated with dengue. In this particular case, the over the counter use of acetaminophen and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs is a confounder as these drugs can lead to renal dysfunction and consequent hypokalemic quadriparesis. [5]
