    Was going to justify a CMV/EBV infection in a patient who was consequently prescribed a penicillin; despite knowing neutrophilia and elevated ferritin would be very atypical =P Even worse to my ego was that the 2nd response hinted at it being a rheumatological condition. After googling, seems like Still's disease (new disease to me) =)

    Good opening Apparat !

    and don't worry about making mistakes, becos some of the cases that are posted here are the ones that we fail to recognize and being a part of any Spot Diagnosis will ensure that u will not miss it in ur clinical practice.

    Welcome to the forum and have a great time learning and consolidating what u have learned.
