FUO: Fever of Undetermined Origin The editor of this multiauthored text states in the preface that it is his hope that this volume will contribute to the care of patients with a fever of undetermined origin (FUO) not only by updating the syndrome, but also by providing sufficient information to permit a rational approach to the diagnosis and management.

Abstract

The editor of this multiauthored text states in the preface that it is his hope that this volume will contribute to the care of patients with a fever of undetermined origin (FUO) not only by updating the syndrome, but also by providing sufficient information to permit a rational approach to the diagnosis and management.

Unlike many other multi-author texts, however, the subject matter is narrow enough that the repetition from chapter to chapter is numbing. Thus, reading from cover to cover is
