Abstract

The possible chain of events in the pathogenesis of pyrogen fever is reviewed with emphasis placed on the following factors; endogenous pyrogens, prostaglandins, a central protein component. endogenous antipyretic and the changes in thermoregulatory effectors. A uniform concept cannot be formulated from the data available on the pathogenesis of fever.
