There is no history of night sweats or other constitutional symptoms.\n\nHe consulted his primary care physician two weeks ago and was found to have a ulcer on his left leg at the time. A course of co-amoxiclav was prescribed, with no improvement.\n\nCloser questioning reveals that he returned from a trip to rural France a month ago, where he was camping and interacting with the local wildlife.\n\nHis medical history is significant for type 2 diabetes mellitus well controlled on metformin. His family history is unremarkable. He does not smoke and drinks socially. There is no history of exposure to tuberculosis.\n\nA complete blood count is significant for a leukocyte count of 12,000\/mm3 (normal: 4,500-11,000) with 80% neutrophils.
