My 25 year old son is currently hospitalized due to having a fever that will not break. He started the fever on Saturday of last week and still has it. There were no other symptoms such as cough, upper respiratory, cold etc. He just developed a fever with no rash just sleeping a lot. Docs can't find what is wrong with him. They found bands in his blood culture and he has an elevated liver enzyme but nothing else. He is very lethargic and can sleep 20 hrs. a day. Nothing has grown in blood or urine cultures. Any ideas?
