Resumen

MENDOZA-ALVAREZ, Sergio Alberto; MORANCHEL-GARCIA, Leslie; RODRIGUEZ-CORCHADO, Brenda Grisel  y  DERAS-QUINONES, Alejandro. Primary myelofibrosis manifested as fever of unknown origin. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.6, pp.1000-1006. ISSN 0186-4866.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24245/mim.v34i6.2000.

This paper reports the case of a 55 year-old man who presented with fever as a primary symptom of his condition. A systematic protocol oriented study led to the diagnosis of fever of unknown origin as a syndrome whose etiologic diagnosis was primary myelofibrosis; rare hematologic disease characterized by fibrosis of the bone marrow, anemia and splenomegaly. A review of the approach of fever and stages of study is done according to current recommendations, technical and scientific, but adapted to our environment and resources.
