Description

A 68-year-old man with fever of undetermined origin (FUO) was admitted to the hospital. At laparotomy, a large multilobulated benign microcystic adenoma of the pancreas was removed. Fever resolved spontaneously after surgery. Although a wide range of diseases may cause fever, a standard definition of FUO remains to be established. The patient in this case demonstrated a definite relationship between a benign pancreatic tumor and FUO, the first such case described in the literature. However, the exact mechanism of fever production is unclear.
