reported a decrease in socs1 expression in DHF with respect to DF patients, which was associated with low levels of IFN-[gamma] and high levels of IL-10 during defervescence [27], similar to our results.
Typically, symptomatic disease follows three phases: a febrile phase lasting 3 to 7 days; a critical phase characterized by defervescence, during which complications appear in a small proportion of patients; and a spontaneous recovery phase.
(3,8) Although there are no definite guidelines regarding duration of anticoagulation therapy for cases of OVT, febrile patients should be anticoagulated for at least 48 hours after defervescence.
The critical phase begins around the time of defervescence. This is when clinically significant plasma leakage can occur, with resultant compensated or decompensated shock and other severe complications.
