Abstract

As international travels and destinations increase, travel-related infections increase. It is reported that 6-87% of the travellers contract travel-related infection during or after the trip. Vector-associated pathogens comprise a significant percentage of travel-related infections. Apart from the ubiquitous COVID19, threats such as Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika virus and tick-borne agents have emerged or re-emerged in recent years. The fact that these infections are carried with similar vectors and cause similar symptoms makes diagnosis difficult. Herein, a case of travel-associated infection with nonspecific symptoms is presented.
