This case involves a ten-year-old male patient who was taken to the hospital by EHS with vomiting, fever, and left lower leg pain after injuring himself in a basketball game. The patient was worked up by the emergency room (ER) physician and diagnosed with dehydration. The patient was discharged with instructions to follow up with his primary care physician in the event any new symptoms arise. A few days later, the patient was readmitted to the hospital after experiencing a bout of intractable vomiting. His working diagnosis and admission was now supported on the basis of septic shock. He was transferred to the intensive care unit but was unable to be properly resuscitated. The patient fell into severe sepsis with multiple organ dysfunction and expired five days after he presented to the emergency room.
