Meet Andreas

Bacterial infection (Leptospirosis)

After two days of 104 degree fevers, Andreas went to the hospital. Hours later, his internal organs began to fail. His treating physicians couldn’t determine a cause and scheduled him for transfer to a nearby institution for emergency liver transplant. Andreas’ wife connected with Grand Rounds from thousands of miles away–in just 24 hours, Grand Rounds diagnosed Andreas with Leptospirosis, a rare bacterial infection, and helped him get the care he needed to save his life.


“Everything moved really fast once Grand Rounds got involved. They gathered his medical records, reviewed his case, and within hours they had an answer.”
