Fever or pyrexia of unknown origin (PUO) is commonly defined as body temperature higher than 38.3°C on several occasions for a period of at least 3 weeks with uncertain diagnosis after initial routine obligatory investigations. In most cases of PUO, there is an uncommon presentation of a common disease which includes infection, noninfectious inflammatory diseases, malignancy, and miscellaneous causes. We present an interesting case of a 48-year-old man with PUO, who is a known case of multiple myeloma on immunosuppressive therapy, where 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography was able to detect occult cause of infective etiology.
