Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Normal platelet count ranges from-150,000 to 450,000 per micro litre of blood.
The count has really gone very low and treatment of fever is required urgently with blood transfusion.
Hope the patient is admitted in a good hospital with all the facilities.

Welcome to Health Care Magic,
If anyone has platelet count has decreased so much then there are obviously other sign of bleeding disorder such as active bleeding,bleeding spot over skin etc.
(I think here is a mistake of printing).However if the count is so low then patient needs urgent platelet transfusion.

hi,thanks for query.What I understand by 134 is 1 lacs thirty four thousand.134 only is not possible and not routinely seen.Dengue is viral fever and can lead to decrease in platlet count,only count is not an indicator for severity of disease,all over general condition of patient is important.Please keep in touch with your dotcor and make sure that he gets proper nutrition and plenty of fluids daily,make sure to avoid injury to his body and give medicines as prescribed by your doctor.In most of the cases the dengue is easily treated and complication are not routine.
wishing him speedy recovery.
