In brief: Unusual presentation
The prodrome is often somewhat prolonged, lasting for three to seven days and is characterized by fever (temperature ?100.
5ºf [>38ºc]) malaise, headache, and myalgias. Unlike many all other resp viral prodromes, most patients have no upper resp symptoms during this stage. At the end of this prodrome, the respiratory phase begins with a nonproductive cough, and may lead to dyspnea and resp failure.
