Approaching Fever in the Tropics

Discerning the cause and best approach to a patient's fever in a tropical, low-resource setting is a daunting challenge. In this interactive session, we will use a case-based approach to review an appropriate differential diagnosis for undifferentiated fever, how to narrow the diagnosis through history, physical, and tests, and how to safely manage the febrile patient. The 3 most important tests to order and the 3 most important antimicrobials to consider will be reviewed. Because it is tightly related, approach to fever in the returning traveler will also be addressed, though not comprehensively.
