A 19-year-old girl who presented with fever of unknown origin of 2 months duration was evaluated. She had a palpable axillary lymph node, mild hepatosplenomegaly and leucopenia (WBC count 1,500/cmm). She was assessed for systemic infection, haematological malignancies and autoimmune diseases. All the investigations for cause of leucopenia and fever were negative. Presence of goitre, past history of hyperthyroidism, clinical findings of tachycardia, tremors and weight loss with thyroid hormone profile suggestive of hyperthyroidism prompted us to think of thyrotoxicosis related autoimmune abnormalities leading to lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly and leucopenia. Patient improved in 3 days after starting anti-thyroid drugs.
