We present the case of a 77 year old man with fever of unknown origin. Despite a thorough assessment in hospital the diagnosis could only be made after discharge when positive results for C. burnetii serology revealed acute Q-fever. However, retrospectively history and clinical findings matched well with acute Q-fever.
