On 10 December 2022, Nesto will be organizing its second congress, focusing on fever of unknown origin (FUO).

Identifying the cause of a fever of unknown origin often proves to be very challenging. When working up a FUO patient, various factors should be taken into account. Therefore FUO will be discussed from a neurological, cardiological and internal medicine point of view, continuously underlining the importance of a correct – and preferably early – diagnosis.
