Q fever: a rare zoonotic disease as a cause of pneumonia in travellers

Beteiligte Einrichtungen


Q fever occurs worldwide but it is rarely reported in travellers. Diagnosing Q fever pneumonia can be challenging and may solely rely on clinical or radiological findings until confirmation by seroconversion can be obtained. We describe a traveller from Brazil demonstrating distinct clinical and radiological characteristics of Q fever pneumonia.
