In brief: Persistent fever
The key question is whether there are any other symptoms besides fever.
In general fever lasting a month should be evaluated. Consider (beyond the usual infections) mononucleosis, lyme disease, hiv, certain fungal infections (histoplasmosis, coccioidomycosis), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, medication reaction, tumors (like lymphoma, leukemia), hyperthyroidism, and autoimmune disorders.
