Recently, ProMED reported an outbreak of severe febrile illness 5 days following ingestion of venison (http://www.promedmail.org/post/20171026.5405515 ) In the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms, these features are compatible with only a handful of infectious diseases. In 1980, a similar outbreak among American hunters was ascribed to acute toxoplasmosis.  The decision support module in Gideon (http://www.GideonOnline.com) also assigns a high ranking to toxoplasmosis.
