Introduction: Dengue has several clinical forms, from asymptomatic to fatal. There are several risk factors associated with mortality from dengue. Objective: To determine the risk factors associated with mortality from dengue. Methodology: case studies (death of dengue adults) and controls (survivors dengue adults) during summer 2012-2013 epidemic in Paraguay. Results: Risk factors significantly associated with mortality from dengue were: presence of comorbidities, hemorrhage, hepatitis, hypoproteinemia and hypoalbuminemia. Dengue shock syndrome was the most common cause of death (49%). Conclusions: The mortality associated with dengue factors are inherent to the patient (comorbidities) and the severity of infection, resulting in hemorrhagic manifestations, systemic involvement and capillary leak.

Palabras clave : dengue, mortality, risk factor, capillary leak.
