Splenomegaly and fever infectious causes: such as bacterial (typhoid fever, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, or AIDS with M. avium complex) fungal agents (histoplasmosis) more commonly splenomegaly results from parasitic diseases such as malaria and leishmaniasis. Viruses such asEpstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV), or hepatitis viruses rarely cause this degree of organomegaly.
