Evaluation of febrile illness in a returning traveler is challenging as it requires careful history taking and knowledge of local epidemiology of endemic and epidemic diseases. Incorporating information of host characteristics for susceptibility of infections is also important for endemic mycosis apart from history of tick bites and animal exposures. Laboratory tests directed by clinical and laboratory parameters will help to reach final diagnosis.
