Abstract

Dengue fever (DF) is an endemic infectious disease in tropical and subtropical regions. Ocrelizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that targets the CD20 antigen on B cells, which is approved for the treatment of both relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) and primary-progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). We describe the favorable clinical outcome of DF in an RRMS patient treated with Ocrelizumab, who neither presented hemorrhagic or systemic shock symptoms nor reported neurological worsening.
