Fever in Returning Travellers Due to a Noninfectious Disease: Two Case Reports
Each year, increasing numbers of people from developed countries travel to developing countries. It is not rare for these travellers to experience illness during or following their trips. It has been estimated that fever is present in 25% of those who seek medical attention following travel.
