Dengue fever is a mosquito borne arboviral infection which is a major health problem worldwide. Complications vary widely and become critical mostly during defervescence period. Dengue fever in pregnant women can cause variety of obstetric and neonatal complications. Sheehan’s syndrome (SS) is a parturition-related pituitary disease resulting from severe postpartum haemorrhage and can present with varying degrees of pituitary insufficiency. Emergency anaesthetic management of a dengue parturient and SS which developed subsequently, secondary to profuse intrapartum bleeding is discussed.
