What causes prolonged fever?

What do you make of a fever that has lasted 2 weeks with no other symptoms? Patient went to primary care giver, had blood work done which came back normal (white blood cell count, etc.) Any ideas what it could possibly be? Patient is drinking plenty of water, Gatorade and has good appetite.

Welcome to healthcare magic.

As you mention fever present but blood report normal...
In typhoid case first week blood test is negative..
Consult a physician for further diagnosis.
Detail history and investigation give exact idea about problems.
Mention a intensity of fever and timing also that helpful in diagnosis.
Take care.
Thank you.
