Dengue fever is endemic in the Indian subcontinent and can have myriad presentations. The term expanded dengue syndrome (EDS) is used for atypical manifestations in dengue fever. We present a rare case of EDS in a patient with secondary dengue infection who developed rhabdomyolysis induced acute kidney injury (RAKI) along with intracranial and intraorbital bleeds. Patient was successfully managed in our institute and was discharged in stable condition. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only reported case of simultaneous occurrence of these complications in a dengue patient. This case is being presented to make clinicians aware of the spectrum of dengue infection.
