Abstract

Q fever, caused by Coxiella burnetii, is an emergent infectious disease in Taiwan. Major clinical presentations of indigenous cases of acute Q fever were acute febrile illness and hepatitis. Here, we report a case of acute Q fever complicated with mild jaundice and pleuritis. He did not respond well to doxycycline or levofloxacin initially, but recovered subsequently with adjuvant steroid therapy.
