Abstract: A 39-year-old caucasian man presented to our hospital in Barcelona with fever, dry cough, headache and weight loss of 4 kg. Symptoms started 5 days after returning from a 21-day travel to Malaysia. His physical examination was unremarkable except for a splenomegaly. Laboratory tests showed mild elevation of transaminases, elevated levels of lactate dehydrogenase (468 UI/L) and a normal blood cell count. Blood cultures, thick and thin blood smear and serologic tests for dengue, chikungunya, HIV, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes virus 6, parvovirus B19, Toxoplasma spp and Rickettsia conorii were negative.
