Abstract

A case of a female patient who came with the history of fever with chills for two weeks duration and was extensively evaluated for the cause of fever. All other causes of fever were excluded. The patient had elevated level of Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) upto 966IU/L. On CT and biopsy of the enlarged lymph nodes, patient was found to have hilar lymphadenopathy with reactive lymphadenitis, which could have been the cause for her symptoms. The cause of the elevated LDH remains to be evaluated.
