Abstract

Although neoplastic fever is a rare entity, it still constitutes a clinical challenge and a troublesome symptom. Differentiating it from other cancer-related fevers, such as infection is important for appropriate patient management. We here report an 80-year-old patient with advanced prostate adenocarcinoma presenting with fever of unknown origin and review English language literature with similar findings.
