Dengue is known for its nonspecific onset and frequently can rapidly deteriorate into a range of feared systemic complications including hemorrhagic fever and shock syndromes. However, vocal cord hematomas associated with dengue fever are a rare presentation.

The patient was treated conservatively and made a complete recovery.
