Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coxiella burnetii, the causative agent of Q fever, is responsible for various clinical syndromes, but lymphadenitis has been described during Q fever in only three recent case reports. Four new cases of acute Q fever associated with lymphadenopathy are reported here, and these cases are discussed along with the three previously reported cases. Coxiella burnetii was isolated for the first time from a lymph node. Q fever should be considered an etiologic agent of lymphadenitis.
