Dengue fever is a common mosquito-borne viral infection endemic in tropical and subtropical countries. Neurological manifestations in dengue infection are relatively uncommon, and include encephalitis, encephalopathy, neuromuscular disorders and neuro-ocular disorders. Cranial mononeuropathy is a rare manifestation of dengue infection. A 20-year-old female was diagnosed with isolated, unilateral sixth cranial nerve palsy complicating dengue encephalitis. The patient was managed accordingly, and full ocular recovery was observed. This was the rare reported case of isolated sixth cranial nerve palsy associated with dengue fever encephalitis. It is important for clinicians to consider dengue as a differential diagnosis in patients presenting with fever and sixth cranial nerve palsy.
