Pyrexia can be extremely threatening during the normal progression of pregnancy if it occurs during the early phase of gestation as compared to the latter half of pregnancy. The degree of temperature rise, stage of pregnancy, and duration of the underlying illness are the important determinants for the outcome of pregnancy. Fever, resulting from the intrauterine infections, can be extremely hazardous for the newborn. Any history of fever (>24 h) during pregnancy mandate a complete clinical examination and thorough investigations. We report successful management of a rare case of prolonged high-grade pyrexia with unusual cause during mid-pregnancy.
