In the interesting description of his experience in Sierra Leone, Satolli refers to an Italian physician from the Emergency team who developed the infection in Africa and was urgently airlifted by the Italian Air Force [1]. The patient, a 50-year old male, was admitted to the L. Spallanzani National Institute for Infectious Diseases (INMI) on November 25, 2014. During his stay which lasted 5weeks, he received different experimental treatments and needed intensive care support for 7days. The patient recovered fully and was discharged on January 2, 2015 [2].
