Differential Diagnosis A guide to the differential diagnosis of fever and a skin rash is given in Table 49-1; it includes treatable infectious disease emergencies (e.g., Rocky Mountain spotted fever, meningococcal or staphylococcal septicemia, and TSS) FEVER and RASH: MORE THAN MEETS the EYE Introduction RASH - May be hallmark of disease or nonspecific - An important clue to etiology of illness - Differential diagnosis is critical - Recognition is key to making a good diagnosis and instituting early and appropriate treatment and infection control . Beware of the chil Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis may present with malaise, fatigue, erythematous skin rash, abdominal discomfort and pancytopenia. Acute myeloid leukemia or Acute lymphoblastic leukemia could present with a rapid onset of fatigue, shortness of breath, fever, rigors and pancytopenia. Differential diagnosis of pancytopenia in an adult If RMSF is treated with antibiotics aimed at another pathogen, the characteristic rash in RMSF may be mistaken for a drug eruption. Conditions to consider in the differential diagnosis of RMSF include the following: Meningitis. Meningococcemia. Q Fever. Rickettsialpox. Streptococcus group A infections. Streptococcus group B infections
A laboratory‐confirmed diagnosis was achieved in 71.3% of cases: 33% were diagnosed with dengue fever, 20% with rubella, 9.2% with human parvovirus B19, 6.7% with measles, and 2.1% with HHV‐6. 4 These results underline the important proportion of cosmopolitan febrile exanthemas Differential diagnoses of urticaria include: Atopic eczema — lesions are usually accompanied by a greater degree of surrounding xerosis and erythema, and the rash typically lasts beyond 24 hours.For more information, see the CKS topic on Eczema - atopic. Contact dermatitis — eczematous rash, at any site related to a topical allergen, in a person of any age The diagnosis may confirm any number of conditions. The presence of a rash may aid diagnosis; associated signs and symptoms are diagnostic of certain diseases. For example, the rash in measles is an erythematous, morbilliform, maculopapular rash that begins a few days after the fever starts. It classically starts at the head, and spreads downwards The information on differential diagnosis of scarlet fever is based on expert opinion in the Public Health England (PHE) publication Guidelines for the public health management of scarlet fever outbreaks in schools, nurseries and other childcare settings , and expert opinion in review articles on rashes [Ramsay, 2002; Watkins, 2008] and on scarlet fever [Holden, 2015; Basetti, 2017; DTB. with a generalized rash. •Develop a differential diagnosis of these rashes based on the systematic application of a series of qualifiers including: •salient patient history •the characteristics of the lesions •the location of these lesions •and the results of selective diagnostic tests

Differential Diagnosis I. Infectious mononucleosis. Rationale: Patients presenting with fever and swollen lymph glands with complaints of sore throat and recent fatigue provide rationale for this differential diagnosis. Infectious mononucleosis may begin slowly with fatigue, a general ill feeling, headache, and sore throat Given the extremely broad differential diagnosis, the presentation of a patient with fever and rash often poses a thorny diagnostic challenge for even the most astute and experienced clinician. Rapid narrowing of the differential by prompt recognition of a rash's key features can result in appropriate and sometimes life-saving therapy Meningococcal disease Short prodromal phase (fever, lethargy, malaise, nausea/vomiting), followed by the more specific and severe symptoms of meningitis and sepsis (limb pain, cold hands/feet, pale or mottled skin). Associated with non-blanching rash - a rapidly evolving petechial or purpuric rash is a sign of very severe disease Nosocomially acquired rashes have more limited differential diagnostic possibilities. 6 The clinician should determine whether the rash and fever represents the primary clinical problem or is a superimposed finding unrelated to another process—for example, ICU patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction can develop a drug rash from an.
Petechial rash in children: a clinical dilemma: Why emergency nurses must be aware of the differential diagnoses associated with petechial rash before initiating treatment for invasive.
