Dengue fever has emerged as a major public health problem in India. In recent years, there has been an upsurge of neurological manifestations in dengue. Here, we report reversible acute motor weakness due to hypokalemia in two confirmed cases of dengue infection. Over a course of few hours following administration of potassium, both the patients recovered without any residual neurological deficit.
