A young woman in her 20s with a lifelong history of sickle-cell disease presents with sickle-cell crisis while in active labor. After delivery of the neonate via cesarean section, her fever spikes to nearly 106 F (41.1 C) and stays there. Clinicians are invited to comment on this case in a discussion moderated by Joseph Pastorek, MD, FACOG.
