Chronic Q fever is uncommon, with the majority of cases manifesting as culture-negative endocarditis. In this report, we describe 3 patients who present with atypical manifestations of chronic Q fever. These were a 43-year-old man whose site of chronic Q fever was the central nervous system, a 53-year-old woman who underwent coronary angioplasty 6 days before the onset of symptoms of acute Q fever and within 4 months had serologic evidence consistent with chronic Q fever, and a 66-year-old man with fever of unknown origin, a pancreatic mass, and aorto-bifemoral grafts.
