A 35-year-old male resident of Cairo, Egypt, had onset of illness on 8 April 2017. He was initially treated as an outpatient (while traveling to Saudi Arabia) but was hospitalized on 16 April and treated with antivirals. A sample collected on 17 April tested positive for influenza A(H5N1). The patient recovered and was discharged on 23 April. A week prior to his illness, the case had visited a live poultry market in Egypt where he was in contact with poultry excreta. Follow-up of contacts of the case took place with no further cases reported. Avian influenza A(H5N1) viruses are enzootic in poultry in Egypt.
