Fever is the single most common chief complaint of children presenting to the emergency department, accounting for about 30 percent of pediatric outpatient visits. Physicians evaluating febrile children must differentiate mildly ill from seriously ill children, a challenge that may be compounded when no focus of infection is apparent. The extent of the diagnostic workup and the institution of appropriate management, including the use of antibiotics and the need for hospitalization, must be determined. Many factors—such as clinical assessment, physical findings, age of the patient, and height of the fever—influence the evaluation and management decisions.
