Description

Fever is the most common symptom faced in routine practice. Fever is body’s response to tissue damage resulting from not only infections but also from non-infective causes such as malignancy and autoimmune disorders. Such a response is beneficial as it is intended to control and repair the damage. So fever need not be totally suppressed but more important is to treat the cause. Finding cause of fever is a challenge especially in first two days but even beyond. Physicians are worried about missing an underlying severe disease and it results in irrational prescription of tests and drugs. Such actions without proper diagnosis can be dangerous and so must be avoided. This chapter offers simple practical tips to deal with this problem.
