Abstract

Pyrexia of unknown origin usually requires extensive diagnostic and therapeutic investigations. At times, even after these extensive procedures, the patient’s condition might go undiagnosed. There is no limit to the spectrum of diseases or infections that present as fever of unknown origin. This case report showcases one such case of undiagnosed pyrexia, which later turned out to be due to a large amoebic liver abscess. Although amoebic liver abscesses are not uncommon, the presentation in the current scenario was uncommon.
