Abstract

A case of inflammatory pseudotumor in a 22-year-old man is described. Symptoms and signs showed high fever and prominent cervical lymphadenopathy; laboratory findings were consistent with an acute inflammatory process. Diagnosis was reached through a lymph node biopsy which allowed a definitive diagnosis and ruled out several mimicking pathological processes such as malignant lymphoma, infectious diseases and autoimmune disorders. Inflammatory pseudotumor should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients with persistent fever and lymph node enlargement.
