Slide 8

July 2010

So our first case is that of a a 42-year-old man from Rhode Island who presents with high fever and shaking chills. He is a self-professed world traveler, and he had just returned from a 2-week “safari” in Tanzania 1 month prior to his presentation. And while he was in Africa, he said that he had multiple mosquito bites, but he took his malaria prophylaxis as prescribed. He also reports tick exposure from woods behind his home.
