Patient Case 3

Slide 21

July 2010

The third and final case that I’d like to review in this presentation is of a 15 year old boy who was in his normal state of good health when he developed fever, fatigue and myalgias of 3 days duration. His history was notable in that he had recently returned with his family from a vacation in northern Minnesota. The boy’s mother indicated he had exposure to ticks and mosquitos during the trip. Due to the patient’s clinical presentation and recent travel history, the care provider suspects possible Lyme disease.
