A potentially deadly influenza mimic.
Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners
This case challenge presents a rare but potentially fatal condition initially mistaken for influenza. Prodromic manifestations are not uncommon at the time of diagnosis or in the preceding days in this idiopathic condition. Untreated, mortality rates are extremely high, but initiation of appropriate therapy has significantly improved survival. Pathophysiology, symptomatology, diagnostics, and treatment are detailed as the case study unfolds.
