PMID:  9684439     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present a case of non-specific vasculitis presenting as a pyrexia of unknown origin to illustrate the diagnostic difficulty which can arise with this condition. The diagnostic event was central retinal artery occlusion and the disease was also associated with pyoderma gangrenosum. History, examination, investigations and management are discussed.
