Fever remains a challenge for physicians, more so when it lasts a month. Although infections remain the most common cause, non-infective causes should also be looked for. Adult Onset Still’s Disease (AOSD) is a rare cause of fever. It is a diagnosis of exclusion. Here, we present the case report of a young male patient, admitted with high grade fever, for more than a month and after excluding infective causes and common autoimmune diseases we kept the possibility of Still’s disease. He was treated with steroid pulse therapy followed by oral steroid. He was on follow-up for six months and is doing well.
