These are the first Good Clinical Practice Guidelines published by Dengue Expert Advisory Group (DEAG) for the management of dengue Infection in adults, hence forth going to be referred to as GCP dengue-guidelines-2012. It must be emphasized that these guidelines are only meant to provide broad recommendations for good clinical practice, based on the best evidence available at the time of development of these recommendations - an overall management strategy in a garden variety of dengue patient. As each patient is unique hence adherences to these guidelines will, by no means, guarantee the best outcome in every case. Attending healthcare provider is best suited to make appropriate decisions for his patients, taking ground realities into cnosideration, regarding implementation / modifications of these “generic” protocols. After all, he is primarily responsible, for the management of his/her “unique patient” based on the clinical picture and the locally available management options.

The authors have issued these GCP guidelines in 2012. It would be reviewed in 2014 or sooner if new evidence becomes available.
