On examination, he had generalized lymphadenopathy and multiple healed pyoderma scars over lower limbs, weight was 23 kg and height was 133.5 cm. His urine showed 10-12 pus cells/hpf with 10-15 RBCs/hpf. Urine culture did not grow any organism. Ultrasound of abdomen showed splenic microabscesses with multiple retroperitoneal lymphnodes. Chest X-Ray and mantoux were negative. ASLO test was negative. The child was treated with cloxacillin but fever persisted.
