Abstract

The following review categorizes periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, adenitis (PFAPA) in recurrent fever syndromes; however, its relationship to rheumatoid arthritis and treatment are explored. After the “discovery” by Marshall et al. (1987) the in-contagious syndrome was diagnosed as a common recurring fever in children yet, was not discovered in adults until 2008 when the first case arose. Since 2008, there have been 34 adult American diagnoses (one case found at W.O.U) living with the economic and social implications of the physical disorder. The following presentation will regard the disease origins, symptoms, repercussions, diagnosis difficulty, and treatment options of PFAPA.
