    • nisam znao, ali pronašao u literaturi, u pubmed bazi podataka. Psihogena febrilnost se opisuje ponajviše u Japanu i deluje dosta bezazleno;  leči se anksioloiticima, a antipiretici ne pomažu, evo pročitajte i vi siže tog revijalnog teksta. Drugi autori smatraju da je uvek neophodno isključiti neke inflamatorne bolesti, koje se mogu kriti iza "psyhognic fever"

      Psychogenic fever:
      how psychological stress affects body
      temperature in the clinical population


      Psychogenic fever is a stress-related, psychosomatic disease especially seen in young women. Some patients
      develop extremely high core body temperature (Tc) (up to 41C) when they are exposed to emotional events, whereas
      others show persistent low-grade high Tc (3738C) during situations of chronic stress. The mechanism for psychogenic
      fever is not yet fully understood. However, clinical case reports demonstrate that psychogenic fever is not attenuated
      by antipyretic drugs, but by psychotropic drugs that display anxiolytic and sedative properties, or by resolving patients
      difficulties via natural means or psychotherapy. Animal studies have demonstrated that psychological stress increases
      Tc via mechanisms distinct from infectious fever (which requires proinflammatory mediators) and that the sympathetic
      nervous system, particularly b3-adrenoceptor-mediated non-shivering thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue, plays an
      important role in the development of psychological stress-induced hyperthermia. Acute psychological stress induces a

      transient, monophasic increase in Tc. In contrast, repeated stress induces anticipatory hyperthermia, reduces diurnal
      changes in Tc, or slightly increases Tc throughout the day. Chronically stressed animals also display an enhanced
      hyperthermic response to a novel stress, while past fearful experiences induce conditioned hyperthermia to the fear

      context. The high Tc that psychogenic fever patients develop may be a complex of these diverse kinds of hyperthermic

      Psychogenic fever reflects a phenomenon where core body temperature is high (up to 41°C) or low-grade high (37–38°C) during either acute or chronic stress. Underlying mechanisms are distinct from infection-induced fever and involve the central and sympathetic nervous systems. Psychogenic fever appears a complex psychological, physiological and endocrinological phenomenon.
