			An outbreak of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
			that began in Wuhan, China, has spread
			rapidly, with cases now confirmed in multiple
			countries. We report the first case of
			2019-nCoV infection confirmed in the United
			States and describe the identification,
			diagnosis, clinical course, and management of
			the case, including the patient's initial mild
			symptoms at presentation with progression to
			pneumonia on day 9 of illness. This case
			highlights the importance of close coordination
			between clinicians and public health authorities
			at the local, state, and federal levels, as well as
			the need for rapid dissemination of clinical
			information related to the care of patients with
			this emerging infection.
