Dengue is the most common human arbovirus infection. The psychiatric symptoms may accompany the acute phase of dengue or can be a late manifestation. Encephalopathy is an atypical manifestation of dengue disease and may present with depressed sensitivity, seizures, nuchal rigidity, pyramidal signs, headache, papilledema, myoclonus, and behavioral disorders. Post - infectious sequelae are mainly memory disturbance, dementia, mania, Reye’s syndrome, and meningo‑encephalitis. In this report we present a case where self-harm is reported as a rare sequelae in Post dengue encephalitis but not part of organic psychosis.
