Case 13b: A 30-year-old man from India presented to the emergency department with a 2-day history of fever, shaking chills, mid-epigastric discomfort, and diarrhea. The patient had lived between India and the United States over the past 2 years, and his last 6-month stay in India ended 6 weeks prior to admission. While in India, he presented to a local doctor due to fever and abdominal pain, and was treated empirically for both malaria and typhoid fever with unknown medications. He took these medications for 45 days—until within a few weeks of his departure to the United States.
