Dr. Carl Boodman discusses four cases of trench fever from Bartonella quintana which is transmitted by body lice. Trench fever was common during the First World War and killed millions of people. In modern times, it is rare, but outbreaks tend to be associated with homelessness, poor living conditions or a history of severe alcohol use disorder or IV drug use. Dr. Boodman first talks about a patient who presented to the emergency department with endocarditis from B. quintana. He then discusses the three other linked cases that were diagnosed over the following weeks. Dr. Carl Boodman is a fifth year medical resident in a combined infection disease and medical microbiology program at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The practice article he co-authored is published in CMAJ: ----------------------------------- This episode is brought to you by MD Financial Management and Scotiabank.
