this condition will require more intense and careful evaluations. Other causes of acute fevers like malaria
, infections from other causes must be evaluated. A complete blood count
and blood cultures with appropriate sensitivity tests might be necessary. Added joint pains
could deserve establishment of a rare association of an inflammatory disease and an infectious disease. A more invasive treatment approach, or surveillance in a hospital milieu might be worthwhile.
Evaluation of the patient by an internist could be of great help. Tropical diseases like malaria should be considered if the patient has been exposed to an endemic region recently.
Consultation with an internist could be a reasonable idea.

wishing him the best of health,
