Dengue infection is endemic to India and an important public health problem. We report three confirmed cases of dengue infection with acute, pure motor, reversible quadriparesis due to hypokalemia. Clinicians should be aware of such an association and consider the clinical possibility in the differential diagnosis while evaluating acute quadriparesis in patients with dengue fever, especially in endemic areas.
