Abstract

Q fever caused by Coxiella burnetii usually presents asymptomatically or as an undifferentiated febrile disease and rarely as rash or other cutaneous manifestations of the disease. Here we present a 41 year old male complaining of body aches, fevers, nausea, malaise, bilateral knee pain, and vomiting. Clinical examination revealed a notable erythematous blanching rash all over his body. Workup revealed positive serologic testing for C burnetii and skin biopsy of the rash revealed leukocytoclastic vasculitis.
