Pyrexia of unknown origin (PUO) is a common occurrence in developing countries and has a long list of known etiologies. Many isolated reports and case series suggest new causative factors for PUO. The present report tries to highlight a rare cause of this condition which has been scarcely documented in the literature. It also reinforces the basics of clinical management i.e., detailed clinical history and examination which dictate subsequent investigations.
