Dengue and Japanese Encephalitis both are caused by Arboviruses spread by mosquitoes are important causes of mortality and morbidity in India. Very few cases of their co-infection have been reported in endemic countries but these is no case report in paediatric population to the best of our knowledge. We report the case of a 4 years old girl child who presented to us with fever, seizures and subsequently developing altered mental status. Lab and radiological investigations proved Dengue and JE co-infection in this child.

Keywords: Arboviruses, Dengue virus, Japanese encephalitis, Dengue JE coinfection, India.
