Hi Doctor, My wife is 26 years, 167 hight, 71 weight and she has fever sience 6 weeks(can reach temp 39.5-40C without medicin to reduce the High temperature), and when we make CT we have found by luck hepatic focal lesion likely haemangioma, Adinoma, in sigmant 3,,,,(they cannot confirm). also we have CBC with high Neutrophils 85%, and WBCs 0000.
Doctor has said that its FUO+Neotrophils but we made blood culture, urin culture, urin analysis and it was OK, Serum Protein electrophoresis(High GAMMA 1.6), LIVER FUNCTION TESTS its given Gamma GT 127; (negative ADNA, AMA, ASMA).

Could you please explain if Atypical haemangioma,or Adinoma can cause fever, also what is your recommendation in case of fever of unknown origin with neutrophiles?

Thanks in advance for your quick response

Thanks for your query.

On reading your query,I would like to share my opinion which is as follows

Common tumors in liver may be :
1.Adenoma (fever & neutrophila very rare).
2.Haemangioma (fever & neutrophilia very rare)
3.One more common condition is HYDATID CYST caused by ECHINOCOCCUS GRANULOSUS (fever & neutrophilia very rare).
4.LIVER ABSCESS (Low grade fever with neutrophila)

There is certainly some damage to the liver cells. There is elevated levels of Liver Enzymes.
White Blood Cells are defense cells of the body. Neutrophils increase specifically in bacterial infection. So there is some bacterial infection against which the body defense has become active. Bacteria causing the infection and the antibiotics sensitive to the infection can be found by blood culture and sensitivity report.
Could you scan (1) CT Scan report and (2) blood culture and sensitivity report and send it to YYYY@YYYY SUB:"Attention Dr. Sapan J. Pandya."

I shall answer you better once I see the reports.

Went through all the reports. Such high ESR is mostly seen in Tuberculosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Dear Doctor,

She had done the Tuberculosis and Rheumatoid Tests and its negative,
what do you think regardless the Tuberculosis and Rheumatoid??

we have now Fever with high neutrophils and high ESR and CRP.

Your help is highly appreciatted

Answered by Dr. Sapan J. Pandya 5 hours later


High neutrophilia, high ESR & high CRP all point towards LIVER ABSCESS.

If it is a liver abscess , antibiotics or a percutaneous or laparoscopic drainage would be needed.


Wish you good health
