Possible disorders and accompanying symptoms of infectious origin that may present in the emergency department include acute epiglottitis, meningitis, Ebola virus, meningococcal septicaemia, and pneumonia, among many others. It will be up to the emergency doctor to assess, diagnose, and decide upon a treatment path for each patient. The cases described in this chapter are all situations any emergency doctor is likely to encounter at some point in his or her career.
