She had chicken for lunch in a local restaurant last week, which she really liked. Otherwise, she denies any unusual foods, any recent travel, or any sick contacts. She doesn't have any pets at home. She is able to keep food down. The only positive physical findings are diffuse abdominal tenderness, fever, and high blood pressure. Fecal leukocytes were negative. A stool culture was sent, which showed moderate Campylobacter jejuni.
