The man had been healthy all his life, I found out when I met him in the department of internal medicine. The patient who answered my questions in a friendly and caring manner was athletic, fit and slim. For a few days he had been suffering from fever and body aches, nausea and weakness.

Everything else seemed improbable to the colleagues with this quite young, perfectly healthy patient.
