The New England Journal of Medicine posts an image in clinical medicine every week. I often look at the quiz images with the allergy fellows in clinic as we try to guess the diagnosis. Last week's image was of a case of Scombroid poisoning in a 6-year-old boy. What struck me as unusual about the case was the symptom duration (48 hours) and the presence of fever. Was it something else?
