My father aged 60, is suffering from mild fever, fatigue, weakness, weightloss and loss of appatite for last 3 months. The WBC count was more than 11000, a medial patch was seen in right lung in ct scan. Tests for hiv, lupus were negative. He has been diagnosed for tuberculosis and complete medicine is on for last 25 days. However, the condition has not improved much. The appetite has improved a bit and frequecy of fever has gone down. But weakness, fatigue and fever is still on. Is he misdiagnosed? Is there any possibility of some other desease.
