Borkowski EA (2014). Retropharyngeal abscess with carotid involvement presenting as fever of undetermined origin in a dog
View abstract View full publication
A young dog was presented with lethargy and pyrexia of 2 days duration, not responding to empirical treatment. Thorough diagnostic investigation failed to determine the cause.

This case highlights the challenging nature of fever of undetermined origin (FUO) and the value of close monitoring for diagnosis and prompt intervention. Can Vet J.
