Specializes in Pulmonary Critical Care

Yes: Specific symptoms vary by the type of vhf, but symptoms often include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, and exhaustion. Patients with severe cases of vhf often show signs of bleeding under the skin, in internal organs, or from body orifices like the mouth, eyes, or ears. Severe cases also cause any organ to fail, with shock, coma, and death.
