Case Conference 1.11.2019

At our last recruitment day we discussed a 45 year old female with history of follicular lymphoma who presented with 4 days of headache, fever and then development of severe myalgias. Exposures were ticks and mosquitos due to gardening but no other sick contacts or travel. After extensive testing a diagnosis of HLH was made, thought to be triggered by tick or mosquito bite/infection (remember that many arboviruses and even tick borne illnesses will not show up on initial testing). For information on HLH and FUO please see below:
