A 35-year-old British man was admitted with a 2-week history of abdominal discomfort, fatigue and intermittent high fevers associated with drenching night sweats. He reported having returned to Australia 2 months before presentation from a 12-year around-the-world trip, having travelled extensively for 6 months through South-East Asia and northern Australia. Before that, he had been to Argentina, the Maldives, Egypt, India and Cambodia, where he had worked as a professional kitesurfing instructor.
