What's the Diagnosis? - November 7, 2016

nov7quiz.jpgA 50-year-old cattle farmer went to his doctor after returning from a 10-day tour of Australian ranches.

He complained of a high fever of 103˚F (39.4˚C), headache, myalgia, nausea, sore throat, sweating, and abdominal pain.

His wife, who accompanied him to the doctor, reported that he had also seemed confused or delirious a few times, which she had attributed to the high fever. 

Is it Leptospirosis, Tularemia, Toxoplasmosis, or Q fever?
