The recent report on “Oral manifestations of dengue viral infection” is very interesting.1 Fernandes et al. noted on “uncommon oral manifestations” in dengue.1 In fact, dengue is a highly endemic infection in many tropical countries. In tropical Southeast Asia, this infection is very common. I would like to share the experience from Thailand, a Country with extremely high prevalence on dengue. The oral manifestation of dengue is very common but it is usually mild and can be misdiagnosed by other tropical oro-dental problem.2,3 Oro-dental bleeding is a common bleeding presentation in dengue but it is usually not investigated and recorded.2 It should be noted that oral manifestation in dengue is not uncommon but usually forgotten by the general practitioner.Conflicts of interest
