A previously healthy 25-year-old man traveled to Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, and installed an outdoor speaker system, a job that involved digging in the ground and laying cable. His condition improved after receipt of ceftriaxone, but he developed a drug-related rash. The necrotic lesions were debrided by a surgeon, cultures of samples obtained from the wound were performed at an outside laboratory and were reported to have grown Huemophilus influenzue. Treatment with doxycycline produced a modest improvement in the patient's condition, and he was referred to the facility.
