The following is a case involving a patient with fever. As the case evolves, I will present assessment findings, lab results, and diagnostic results in the hope of eliciting responses on how we would approach the care of this patient. I'm extending this to multiple parts and it may drag on for weeks. Please feel free to post your thoughts. Be nice to each other though, this is a free forum of expression but always remember to adhere to this site's TOS. Though this case is based on a real patient case from start to end, some facts have been altered to protect privacy.
