ABSTRACT We present a case of periodical fever with aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and adenitis (PFAPA syndrome), entity that is apparently infrequent and its report in the country was not found. Its etiology is not still clearly understood. It appears with higher frequency in the ages between 2 and 5 years, though it has been described in adult population. It is characterized by periodical fever with aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and adenitis of periodical character, with a dramatic answer to the use of steroids in most of the cases. The case that is presented is the one of a male patient aged 5 years with reiterative periodical fever associated to tonsillitis with exudate, adenitis and aphthous lesions, with answer, in the acute phase, to prednisone, and to cimetidine at the maintenance therapy. Nowadays, he is already 11 months in remission.
