Abstract

Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by prolonged high grade fever, arthralgia, salmon color rashes. It is often complicated by a fatal condition called hemophagocytic syndrome. Serum Ferritin levels are extremely elevated in AOSD. We are reporting one such case, with ferritin level of more than 1 lac.
