[3] Puberty may be affected.[] A 61 years old woman presented with low grade fever and weight loss for a month.[] A 26-year-old woman complained about recurrent fever, auricular chondritis, ocular inflammation, and arthritis.

Weakness, weight loss and fatigue are common.[] In December 2015, he presented at our hospital with fever and lumbago.[] Some patients with CML have low-grade fever and excessive sweating related to hypermetabolism.[]

  • Thyroid Crisis

    Circulatory collapse and dehydration under excessive hypermetabolic state presumably suppressed the source of energy and oxygen for muscle cells, leading to cellular damage[] He developed fever and tachycardia, and was diagnosed with thyroid crisis.[] Similarly, severe burn injury also has a hypermetabolic response as part of its presentation.[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    […] fat metabolism for energy (breaking down of fats for fuel) increases basal metabolic rate (burns more calories) increases thermogenesis (elevates body temperature) how you[] OBJECTIVE: To explore the fever of unknown origin (FUO) in patients with interleukin-6 (IL-6)-producing pheochromocytoma.[] […] which can be persistent or paroxysmal • Headache due to cerebral blood flow affectation from catecholamine level changes in the circulation, more occipital than temporal • Hypermetabolism[]

  • Chronic Phase of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    In the accelerated phase, the number of CML cells is growing faster and causing symptoms such as fatigue, fever, weight loss and an enlarged spleen.[] These patients often have fever, poor appetite, and weight loss. In this phase, the CML acts a lot like an acute leukemia.[] Patients in blast phase often have a fever, an enlarged spleen, weight loss, and generally feel unwell. Resistant CML.[]

  • Hashitoxicosis

    The hallmark symptoms of a thyroid storm is a fever which can go as high as 40.5 - 41.1 C (105 - 106 F).[] : Skin changes Case 38: Ankle pain Case 39: Shoulder pain Case 4: Vaginal bleeding Case 40: Dizziness Case 5: Nausea Case 6: Pelvic pain Case 7: Toddler with a cough and fever[] Symptoms of a thyroid storm are severe and complications include fever, dehydration, rapid heart rate, irregular heart beat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, confusion[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in the literature presenting with simultaneous hypermetabolic lesions in the prostate and lung.[] Post-operative fever is common following emergency surgery.[] A 42-year-old female with goitre since childhood was evaluated for dry cough, occasional wheezing and low grade fever.[]

  • Leukemia

    fever on day 29.[] Over 50% of children with leukaemia have palpable livers, palpable spleens, pallor, fever or bruising on diagnosis.[] Fever persisted despite effective antifungal treatment.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    PET/CT findings presented as a pattern of skeletal "superscan," including diffuse and prominent hypermetabolism throughout the axial and proximal appendicular skeleton, which[] Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by recurrent episodes of painful inflammation in the abdomen, chest, or joints.[] We report two cases who presented with fever and blood routine abnormity which were conformed as SFTS eventually.[]
