Abstract

We describe a case whose clinical features strongly suggested Still's disease, which led to the discovery of breast cancer. Our patient's symptoms consisting of fever, joint inflammation, pleuritis, and pericarditis, were initially resistant to high doses of steroids, and disappeared only after the cancer was removed, despite rapid tapering and cessation of steroid therapy. A paraneoplastic phenomenon seems probable.
