Adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD), also known as Wissler-Fanconi syndrome is a rare systemic disorder. Symptoms usually include fever, joint pain, and rash. The diagnosis of ASOD is mostly clinical and excludes other possible causes. In this case report, a 25 years old gentleman, who in the recent past was diagnosed and treated with septic and reactive arthritis. He presented to us with a salmon-colored rash along with arthritis and was diagnosed as AOSD on the basis of clinical criteria, leukocytosis, raised inflammatory markers i.e., serum ferritin after the exclusion of other conditions.
