A 6-year-old girl of eastern Himalayan origin presents with a 1-year history of recurring fever and abdominal pain. The fever is intermittent and high grade, associated with chills and sweating, with recurrences every 2 to 3 weeks. She also reports left flank and abdominal pain, with some associated distention. She feels full easily during meals and often wakes up from sleep due to pain. There is no pedal edema, breathlessness, decreased urination, or facial puffiness. She feels easily fatigued and is described as getting more “white” by the parents. Her family and developmental histories are normal. Details of previous evaluation and care are not available.
