In conclusion, determining an etiology in a patient with FUO can be challenging due to the breadth of possibilities. It is not only challenging, but FUO often represents an atypical presentation of a disease. This case provides such an example and aims to highlight the extensive workup required. In addition, it supports the adage that a full detailed history and examination is often a necessity when evaluating FUO; repeated history and examinations may be needed, with no symptom being viewed as irrelevant. Findings then must be used to direct further investigations. An investigatory approach is outlined in this case report and aims to provide clinicians a foundation from which to work from in the workup of similar cases.
