The article examines whether a teething child need serious illness excluding. It presents the case of an eight-month-old girl with a 24-hour history of drooling, intermittent screaming and low-grade fever. Five studies analyzing the association between teething and systemic symptoms are cited. No evidence is found out to suggest that there are any symptoms or signs specific to teething which permit a diagnosis to be done confidently in a child without excluding other organic pathology.
