Abstract: Seventy serum samples from clinically diagnosed dengue patients admitted to the North Okkalapa General Hospital, Yangon, Union of Myanmar, in 1994, were used to obtain the confirmed virological diagnosis by IgM-capture ELISA using all four types of dengue antigens raised by cell culture method. Sixty-two out of 70 specimens (88.6%) showed positive IgM ELISA titer against one or more assay antigen. Single application of dengue 2 antigen could detect 59 out of 62 positive sera (95.1% of total positives), whereas three more samples could be detected by using other serotypic antigens (either single antigen or double antigens in combination). Ten samples showing positive by single dengue antigen but negative results by the rest could possibly be due to the primary infection which showed serotype specific immune response.
