Answer

A small percentage of immunocompetent patients develop severe systemic disease or other atypical manifestations. These may include oculoglandular syndrome, encephalitis, neuroretinitis, pneumonia, osteomyelitis, erythema nodosum, arthralgia, arthritis, and thrombocytopenic purpura. [3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
