Herein, we report two cases of confirmed giant cell arteritis (GCA) which were complicated with small intestinal damage associated with prolonged NSAIDs use that mislead the clinicians to other FUO etiologies.
While the most common cause of FUO remains infections, they only account for a third of all FUOs.

We report a case of intra-abdominal lymphadenitis that presented as fever of unknown origin(FUO) and diagnosed by excisional biopsy as a case of KFD.
Ten years later, the patient developed FUO resistant to antibiotics; he was admitted in Infective Disease Department where a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed many vegetations on the leads: the biggest one (2 cm x 3 cm) in the right ventricular lead, near tricuspid valve, without continuity with it.
We then followed the American Academy of Family Physicians' diagnostic protocol for FUO. (1)
Fever of Unknown Origin (FUO) is the fever not showing spontaneous resolution in the time period anticipated for self-limited infection and the etiology of which cannot be determined in spite of substantial diagnostic efforts.1 Quite a few of these conditions affect bone marrow directly or indirectly.
At this stage, she was referred to our institution with a diagnosis of fever of unknown origin (FUO).
* Fever of unknown origin (FUO) including true FUO (defined according to the criteria of Durack and Street, postoperative fever and recurrent sepsis, immunodeficiency (both induced and acquired)-related FUO, neutropenic fever, and isolated acutephase inflammation markers (persistently raised C-reactive protein and/or erythrocyte sedimentation rate) [1,2]
Order arises through tatau (symmetry) at the intersections of the fourfold of ta (time), va (space), fuo (form) and uho (substance).
A total of 60 patients in the age group from birth to 75 years attending the medicine and pediatric departments diagnosed with fever of unknown origin (FUO) in whom common illnesses including enteric fever, dengue, malaria, and brucellosis were ruled out were included.
