Description:

This NICE Pathway covers the assessment and early management of fever with no obvious cause in children under 5. It aims to improve clinical assessment and help healthcare professionals diagnose serious illness among young children who present with fever in primary and secondary care. These recommendations should be followed until a clinical diagnosis of the underlying condition has been made. The child should then be treated according to national or local guidance for that condition.
