Cureus 2022 Feb 6;14(2):e21959. Epub 2022 Feb 6.

Business Management, Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, USA.

The clinical and diagnostic workup of fever of unknown origin (FUO) is key in the treatment of patients on the internal medicine service. In this article, the authors present a case of fever of unknown origin, walk through the differential diagnosis, explain the laboratory testing ordered in the workup of the patient as well as the resulting values of said testing, and discuss the pathophysiology and diagnostic criteria for the diagnosis of Pel-Ebstein fever. The authors also discuss a clinical pearl when working with electronic health records to ensure that the needs of the patient in question are met. Read More

Unusual bone marrow relapse of Hodgkin's disease with typical Pel-Ebstein fever.

Ann Hematol 1996 Jul;73(1):39-40

Division of Hematological Oncology, IST, Università di Genoa, Italy.

We report the unusual case of a 43-year-old man with a diagnosis of clinical stage I A mixed cellularity Hodgkin's disease (HD), who relapsed 4 years after diagnosis with exclusive bone marrow involvement and a cyclic variation in body temperature typical of Pel-Ebstein fever. In the absence of clinical and laboratory signs of infection, a restaging of the lymphoma was performed. Total-body CT scan revealed no parenchymal or lymph node involvement, while a bone-marrow biopsy was positive for the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. Read More

Multiple Beau's lines in a patient with fever of unknown origin.

South Med J 1993 Dec;86(12):1424-6

Department of Internal Medicine, James H. Quillen College of Medicine, East Tennessee State University, Johnson City 37614-0622.

We describe a case of fever of unknown origin (FUO) of 9 months' duration in which the finding of regularly spaced multiple Beau's lines (the "ladder nail" sign) pointed to the possibility of a relapsing fever of the Pel-Ebstein variety and an underlying lymphoma. Subsequent investigation confirmed the association of the Beau's lines and fever, as well as the diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease as the cause of the FUO. In this setting, Beau's lines may provide an important diagnostic clue and should be carefully looked for on physical examination. Read More

Pel-Ebstein fever coinciding with cyclical haemolytic anaemia and splenomegaly in a patient with Hodgkin's disease.

Scand J Haematol 1979 Nov;23(5):378-80

Periodic (Pel-Ebstein) fever of lymphomas.

H A Reimann

Ann Clin Lab Sci 1977 Jan-Feb;7(1):1-5

During lymphomatous diseases, bouts of intermittent or relapsing Pel-Ebstein fever occasionally repeat in remarkably regular tempo resembling the episodes of benign periodic fever. Febrile episodes alone, especially during acute lymphomatous disease, occasionally precede overt evidence of underlying disease for months. In that event, diagnosis and treatment of lymphomas are delayed. Read More

Fever and haemolysis in Hodgkin's diseases.

L Storgaard H Karle

Acta Med Scand 1975 Apr;197(4):311-6

One hundred and four patients with Hodgkin's disease have been studied retrospectively in order to evaluate the relationship between fever associated with the disease (Pel-Ebstein type) and the development of anaemia. In the material 19 episodes of fever were found to be of this type. The mean loss of Hb during a fever period was 14% (range 2-33). Read More
