Can a child get high fever without any infection ?

My 5 year old nephew has had a high fever on and off for a week now. We have taken him to the doctor twice and the emergancy room once when it reached 104.8. He is lethargic at times and started having diarrhea yesterday. He normally has allergies and sinus drainage so that is nothing new. His glands are swollen. The tests run at the doctor s office indicate no increased wbc s, no virus, no bacteria . He was tested for mono, strep, and the flu. All were negative. Something s wrong.
