Conditions with similar signs and symptoms from Orphanet
Many other inflammatory, neoplastic, and infectious conditions with a similar presentation must be ruled out in order to diagnose AOSD. Differential diagnoses include infections (endocarditis, occult infections, secondary syphilis, viral rash), malignancies (lymphoma) or autoimmune diseases (such as polyarteritis nodosa, vasculitis, or polymyositis). Genetic counseling (if relevant) AOSD is a sporadic non-inheritable disease and genetic counseling is therefore not needed.
