In brief: Antibiotics/support

Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for six weeks plus streptomycin 1 g daily im for 2-3 weeks.
Gentamicin may be an alternative to streptomycin. Another choice would be doxy plus Rifampin 15 mg/kg daily, both for six weeks. If symptoms involving the heart spine or nervous system develop, hospitalization and more intensive regimens are indicated.
