My friend travelled to China (Shanghai/Beijing) last spring and became sick, she 
has been ill since then with recurring high fevers, extreme fatigue, weight loss 
65lbs, and now cysts occurring in her brain (3 different bacteria) The doctor 
says the site of whats causing the cysts is not from the brain but seems to 
occur there after the fevers. She's now in ICU, has several neurosurgeries due 
to the cysts occurring in left brain after recurring fevers. One traveller in 
preceding group had similar symptoms for a month and was diagnosed with 
intestinal tick in small intestine, he is fine now. Unfortunately my friend also 
has a blood disorder ITP ,not the cause of this illness but definately 
complicating diagnosis and treatment. She's down been to Toronto General twice 
but no diagnosis. Her doctor is looking for all the info he can find...she is 
hanging on but we need more help asap. Does anyone on this newsgroup know of any 
medical experts who have dealt with intestinal ticks from this geographic area? 
Who are the experts in diagnosis and treatment? Suggestions for any help greatly 
appreciated. Thanks for the help.
