My 75 year old mother has been having a low grade temperature since April 2009. The temperature rises to about 100 in the evenings and is sometimes accompanied by chills and sweating . The doctors diagnosed Koch's after the manto test tested positive in june 09 and accordingly she was being treated. However after 2 months of treatment there seemed to be no response so the specialist ( pulmonologist ) was ref to and they ordered a series of investigations including CT scan of chest, abs and pelvis followed by ACNA, DNA blood tests which all turned out negative. A prophylactic was prescribed saying they could diagnose anything. The fever still persists and we do not know what to do PLease help
