Thank you for posting your query.
may fall in viral fever also. Also, one should exclude conditions such as dengue fever, if there is fever with low platelet count.
You should also do a blood culture
(to exclude vegetations and valve infection
) and collagen profile (ANA, antids DNA, etc). These investigations are required if your fever is persisting for more than two weeks and no cause has been identified.
