Hi ! High level of alkaline phosphatase in blood may be a normal phenomena in growing children unless and otherwise there are other features of liver infection or hepato biliary diseases. So I do not think it to be a cause of worry. She should be investigated as a case of fever if the same persists for a while. Wishing your daughter a quick recovery.
