Answer

Symptoms usually occur within 7-14 days of contact. Patients frequently exhibit a dramatic clinical presentation of bacteremia, minus a clear focus. This may be characterized by the abrupt onset of the following:

  • High fever

  • Shaking chills

  • Generalized myalgia

  • Exquisite pain in the lower extremities (most characteristic) or, rarely, pain in the lower trunk [42]
