Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your daughter's condition. Although there are many causes of fever in a child but in a patient after bone marrow transplant could be a sign of a serious underlying problem. You should consult your doctor immediately and visit him. They will run a panel of tests (blood and urine), which will help in pointing towards the cause of fever.

Hope your daughter gets well soon. Please feel free to clarify any other query with me.
