Please, can anyone help. My grandchild has been suffering from cyclic high fevers since the first month of her life and is now six years old. Since the first month, in the first week of the month she has presented with very high fevers, (often in the high 104 range) along with a host of other symtoms including:

severe lethary, projectile vomiting, severe malaise, pain with movement, some times neck appears to be stiff (doctors have thought meningitis and tested), elevated white count (however testing for infections such as UTI, ear, throat show negative), trace blood in urine, sed rates below normal, IGA deficiency found, T3 and T4 anomalies, severe pallor, weakness, complains of head and stomach hurting.

If anyone has any ideas, please help. Some blood work presented as indicators for cancer, however when taken to Dornbeckers, was not diagnosed.

She is fine during times when these symptoms are not occuring. Active, happy, normal growth.
