Assuming u have UWorld, just type sexually transmitted infections.. that table is the best IMO
More like Zika Virus (Same a. aegypti vector) since it says she has rash associated to her bone and muscle pain. I had Zika one time (i live in Puerto Rico).
Remember also dengue and Zika are Flavivirus. Dengue can cause hemolysis (hemorrhagic), and Zika is associated with Guillen Barre and fetal abnormalities.
I'm shocked that I found a fellow puerto rican on this site! Good luck on your test!
dont be shocked! me too! exito!
I was thinking that its Murine typhus transmitted by fleas
I would say this is more likely scenario of either Dengue or Chikungunya, not Zika virus. Excruciating pain is common in those, not in Zika. Zika has milder symptoms of those three infection.
Can confirm that Chikungunya's arthralgia is pretty horrible, from personal experience.
