According to the American College of Rheumatology only 15% of children diagnosed with recurrent fever exhibit signs into adulthood, but that is little comfort for the children who suffer from this painful syndrome. Because of this Cleveland Clinic Children’s has brought together pediatric rheumatologist Andrew Zeft, MD and pediatric infectious diseases specialist Camille Sabella, MD to answer your questions about recurrent fever.
In our December webchat, Drs. Zeft and Sabella will answer your questions related to children exhibiting recurrent episodes of fever, sore throat, and swollen glands to help you figure out when it’s a virus and when it may be something more. They will also discuss treatment options to better control symptoms and help children lead happier, healthier lives.
