Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response

if you want me to answer your question directly if adenoids can cause fever I would say yes because they can be a nidus of infection.

But at the same time, the most common cause of fever in young children is not adenoidal hypertrophy but it is a simple viral illness.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
