His illness began when he developed a sore throat and weakness. He was treated with amoxicillin and had some improvement in symptoms over the next 2 days.

This patient had no significant medical or surgical history, was receiving no long-term medications, and had no known drug allergies. He never smoked and had no history of illicit drug use.
