Case 9

Show Summary Details


A 30-year-old Polish man was admitted to hospital with confusion and aggressive behaviour. The history was obtained from friends. He had been unwell for the previous 5 days with fever and headache and over the 2 days prior to admission had suffered several episodes of vomiting and complained of a stiff neck. He had been working in the UK as a labourer for the preceding year and had not left the UK during that period. His wife had remained in Poland. None of his friends or workmates had been unwell. He had had one or two brief sexual relationships since his arrival in the UK. There was no past medical history.
