Periodic Fever, Aphthous Stomatitis, Pharyngitis, Cervical Adenitis (PFAPA) is a
syndrome that consists of recurrent episodes of fever, sore throat, mouth sores and
swelling of the glands in the neck. The frequency of PFAPA is not known, but the
disease appears to be more common than originally thought, and may be the most
common recurrent fever (autoinflammatory) syndrome that does not come from an
infection. Both males and females and all ethnic groups can develop PFAPA. PFAPA
usually starts in early childhood, between the ages of two to five years. Occasionally
PFAPA may develop at an older age, including rare cases in adults.
