high fevers in child(FUO)

Posted By RL on October 13, 1998 at 20:10:55:







My friends son (age 13)has been having unexplained high fevers for several months now.  This fever goes as high as 105 and goes and comes. He has had many tests and they cant find out what is causing it.  He doesnt have many other symptoms except frequent headaches, and malaise.  He had a brain mri without  dye that they said was normal. My question is - could there be any neurological cause of this fever? ie brain disfuncion? -- These fevers are strange in that he doesnt get hot and red and miserable as one usually would with a fever that high. His family is very frustrated at this point. They are thinking of taking him out of state to a specialty clinic.  Thank you  for any info or insight you may be able to offer!!
