6 Cases in 2006...
Case 5. On July 9, a man aged 30 years from La Plata County, Colorado, went to a hospital emergency department with a 3-day history of fever, nausea, vomiting, and right inguinal lymphadenopathy. He was discharged home without treatment. Three days later, the man returned and was hospitalized with sepsis and bilateral pulmonary infiltrates. Plague was considered immediately, and the patient was placed in respiratory isolation. He was treated with gentamicin and recovered. Five hospital workers were administered doxycycline prophylaxis because of exposures before respiratory isolation had been initiated. Cultures of blood and a lymph node aspirate grew Y. pestis. One of the patient's dogs had serologic evidence of past Y. pestis infection. Y. pestis was recovered from fleas of two species (Aetheca wagneri and Pulex simulans) collected near the patient's home. A plague epizootic had been noted in the area, and four other human plague cases have been reported from La Plata County since July 2005.
