Periodic fever aphthous pharyngitis and cervical adenopathy (PFAPA) is a more common and familiar condition than the frightening name given to it.

Many children experience recurrent episodes of fever with swollen glands and when there are no other symptoms, they are usually diagnosed with "viral infection." Only a few of them will be diagnosed with FPAPA when the fever turns cyclic, but this diagnosis will not give the parents or the child any relief.

A brief dive into the writing of Sun Simiao from almost 1400 years ago, together with clinical case studies, will give us an interesting insight into a situation that can be explained as a healthy state of the body and the immune system rather than as a disease.
