"Fever is an important and relatively common presentation of infections in returning travelers. The most common infections diagnosed in febrile returning travelers are malaria, dengue, mononucleosis, rickettsial infections and typhoid and paratyphoid, but many remain undiagnosed. A significant proportion of travelers may have infections that are also common in nontravelers, which can be a source of confusion. The initial evaluation of these travelers should focus on infections that are life threatening, treatable, or pose a risk to public health. If an infection is thought to be one of those that pose a risk to public health, often listed as a notifiable disease, then the general practitioner should liaise with public health authorities immediately." - Peter A. Leggat MD
