Abstract

Fever of unknown origin is a symptom that is recognized in all medical branches. Even though fever is a symptom of infectious diseases, not all fever cases are related with infectious diseases. In the event of long term fever, be­side the infectious diseases, collagen tissue lesions and malignancies must also be recognized.Here, we pres­ent two adult-onset Still disease patients who were diag­nosed with fever of unknown origin. Our aim is to point out the importance of remembering adult-onset Still disease in patients who were diagnosed with fever of unknown origin.
