The fever profile comprises tests that help in detecting the cause of fever. It includes Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Complete urine examination, Complete blood count (CBC), Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), Malarial antigen (Vivax and Falciparum), Peripheral smear for malarial parasite (MP), and Typhoid IgM test. This package is especially advised in cases when the fever is persistent and the cause is not identified (fever of unknown origin).
The fever profile is done:
• To detect the exact cause of fever.
• To identify the virus/parasite causing the fever.
