The incubation period of Ebola is generally 1 to 2 weeks but can range from 2 to 21 days. Initial clinical symptoms are nonspecific, with sudden onset of fever, chills, myalgia, and malaise. This is followed by flu-like symptoms (nasal discharge, cough, and shortness of breath); gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain); and, finally, hemorrhagic symptoms in the most severe cases. Poor prognosis is associated with the development of shock, encephalopathy, and extensive hemorrhage. Laboratory findings include leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, elevated levels of aminotransferase and prothrombin, and partial thromboplastin times with presence of fibrin split products indicating diffuse intravascular coagulation (1).
