Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is an arboviral disease in humans regarded as a major international health problem in tropical and subtropical countries. The difference outcomes in studies previously encourage researcher to find validity of the correlationbetween hematocrit and platelets with theseverity of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) through study performedto dengue hemorrhagic fever patients at Sanglah Hospital during 2013-2014.This is a cross-sectional study using the medical record as data source. The samples were selected with consecutive sampling technique.Based on clinical symptoms and physical examination found that 50 persons (50%) classified as grade I, 48 persons (48%) classified as grade II, 2persons (2%) classified as grade III, and no grade IV. Based on theseverity of DHF, in 50 patients withgrade I obtained 40patients had normal HCT (80%),3patientshad low hematocrit(6%),and 7patientshad high hematocrit(14%). In 48 patients withgrade II found that 30 patientshad normal hematocrit(62.5%), 4patients had low hematocrit (8.3%), and 14 patients had high hematocrit (29,2%). While, in 2patients withgrade III obtained that 1 patienthad normal hematocrit (50%) and 1 patienthad high hematocrit (50%). The entire sample hadplatelet values below normal.From the analysis data resultscan be concluded that the hematocrit (r=0,173; p>0,05) and platelet values (r=-0,117; p>0,05) do not have a meaningful correlation with the severity of DHF.
