It is one of the commonly under diagnosed conditions probably due to a lack of clinical suspicion and lack of diagnostic facilities.

The condition may also present with gastrointestinal features such as Hepatospleenomegaly, Ocular changes such as conjunctival injection, Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), or neurological findings in the form of meningoencephalitis.
