Q fever in adults patients with prolonged cough

 The involvement of Q fever in prolonged cough (which lasts 3 weeks or longer) was examined. Ninety-four adult patients who visited Kawasaki Hospital,Kawsaki Medical School from April 2007 to March 2011 complaining of prolonged cough whose chest radiographs showed no abnormality were selected as subjects. The diagnosis of Q fever was made using ELISA kit from PanBio. According to the results, Q fever infection was found in 1 (1.1 %) of 94 patients. Q fever may, therefore, be a cause of prolonged cough, though its frequency is low. (Accepted on August 8, 2011)
