Editor, – Adverse drug reactions are a common problem in medical practice and can present in a variety of ways. Fever is not an uncommon manifestation and may confuse the prescriber.
We have recently seen three cases involving patients who were taking ciprofloxacin for febrile illnesses. While their conditions improved the patients remained febrile until they stopped the ciprofloxacin. We remind readers that fever is one of the more common adverse reactions reported with ciprofloxacin.
