Abstract

Presently, clinicians often forget important aspects of fever patterns. This study presents the case of disseminated tuberculosis in a 64-year-old man whose chief complaint was morning fever. He was a kidney transplant patient and presented with productive cough, reverse fever pattern and a nodular pattern in chest radiograph. Clinicians should suspect disseminated tuberculosis in patients who present with reverse fever pattern, especially with compatible radiographic findings. © 2012 Asian-African Society for Mycobacteriology.
