    A case of histiocytic medullary reticulosis in a 45-year-old man is described. The presentation with a swinging pyrexia is typical. Associated features were very low levels of all immunoglobulins and proved disseminated intravascular coagulation. Heparin therapy was given and the difficulties of controlling such treatment are demonstrated. It is concluded that an increased awareness of the condition as a cause of pyrexia might lead to an improvement in prognosis.
