Since 2007, the Netherlands was confronted with the largest Q fever outbreak ever reported. Q fever has a wide clinical spectrum ranging from asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic illness to fatal disease. Knowledge of Q fever has greatly expanded over the last decades, but research has mainly focused on adult disease; data in children are scarce. Available data suggest that children are less severely affected than adults. The Working Party for Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunology of the Dutch Pediatric Society has composed a practical tool for the diagnosis and treatment of Q fever in children, based on best-available evidence and expert opinion.
