Fever is probably the most common symptom observed by physicians and is defined as elevation of body temperature above normal limits of the central regulatory processes originating in the hypothalamus. Several neurologic disorders, both infectious and noninfectious, have fever as a manifestation. Fever may be sustained, intermittent, remittent, or relapsing and is accompanied by other symptoms such as malaise, rigors, seizures, and impairment of consciousness.
