  • A Stab in the Dark: A Case Report of an Atypical Presentation of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA). [Case Reports]
  • GGeriatrics (Basel) 2018 Jun 29; 3(3)
  • McCausland B, Desai D, … Patel HP
  • CONCLUSIONS: This case highlights how a vasculitis can present with a range of non-specific symptoms that may resemble a fever of unknown origin (FUO)/sepsis that can lead to a delay in making the correct diagnosis. It also highlights the importance of considering a diagnosis of vasculitis in patients who present with a FUO where there is no clear focus of infection. Delays in diagnosis and management of these conditions can potentially lead to significant irreversible morbidity.
  • Fever of unknown origin: a retrospective review of pediatric patients from an urban, tertiary care center in Washington, DC. [Journal Article]
  • WJWorld J Pediatr 2019 Mar 19
  • Szymanski AM, Clifford H, Ronis T
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study aligns with some of the most recent publications which report undiagnosed cases as the most common outcome in patients hospitalized with FUO. Understanding that, often no diagnosis is found may reassure patients, families, and clinicians. The cost associated with hospitalization for FUO may cause clinicians to reconsider inpatient admission for diagnostic work-up of fever, particularly given the evidence demonstrating that many patients are discharged without a diagnosis.
  • Four-extremity venous duplex ultrasound for suspected deep venous thrombosis is an anachronism. [Journal Article]
  • JVJ Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2019; 7(3):325-332.e1
  • Yoo T, Aggarwal R, … Haurani MJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: FED for FUO is inefficient, given that DVT was rarely the proximate cause of fever. Acute upper extremity DVT was found only in patients with an upper extremity CVC, demonstrating that patients without upper extremity CVC do not benefit from upper extremity duplex ultrasound examination. Upper extremity DVT is usually line associated and dependent on the number of cumulative risk factors present, suggesting that only the extremity associated with the CVC in the right clinical context should be imaged. Lower extremity DVT is also dependent on the number of cumulative risk factors present, and testing should be reserved for patients according to the clinical context. Our results indicate that a restrictive strategy can reduce testing inefficiency and health care cost without compromising patients' safety.
  • The changing pattern of fever of unknown origin in Republic of North Macedonia. [Journal Article]
  • RJRom J Intern Med 2019 Mar 11
  • Bosilkovski M, Dimzova M, … Vidinic I
  • CONCLUSIONS: A changing pattern of diseases causing FUO during the examined periods was evident. Infections continue to be the most common cause but with decreasing incidence when compared to 20 year ago. Even nowadays clinical evaluation and follow-up still remain the vital diagnostic tools in determining the etiology of FUO.
