Purpose Hyperthermia occurs when heat accumulation surpasses the body’s ability for heat dissipation. Many drugs may affect thermoregulation. This narrative review aimed to provide an overview of the current literature concerning reports of drug-associated non-pyrogenic hyperthermia. Methods A comprehensive search was performed across 5 databases covering the period of inception to March 2019, for publications that reported hyperthermia associated with drug use. Studies that reported potential… Expand
Drug‐associated hyperthermia: A longitudinal analysis of hospital presentations
This study aimed to examine hospitalizations and emergency department presentations due to hyperthermia and to investigate the potential association with drug therapy. Expand
Global warming, heat-related illnesses, and the dermatologist
Identification of individuals at increased risk for heat-related morbidity and mortality will become increasingly important in the care of patients and for dermatologists to be versed in the physiology of cutaneous heat dissipation and cognizant of clinical settings in which the skin's thermoregulatory responses may be impaired.

Management of drug-induced hyperthermia>
Although the recognition of causative agents is increasing, the treatment of drug-induced hyperthermia remains unchanged and continues to be primarily supportive. Expand

DIH is a hypermetabolic state caused by medications and other agents that alter neurotransmitter levels, and the treatment of DIH syndromes includes supportive care and pharmacotherapy as appropriate. Expand
Psychotropic drugs use and risk of heat-related hospitalisation
In special risk situations such as heat waves, the risk/benefit ratio of psychotropic drugs which could interfere with body temperature regulation has to be carefully assessed, particularly in the elderly. Expand
Influence of Drug Use on Morbidity and Mortality in Heatstroke
Drugs that impair thermoregulation are frequently encountered in patients admitted for heatstroke, and patients taking such drugs may experience increased morbidity over those patients not takingsuch drugs. Expand
The heat is on: Molecular mechanisms of drug-induced hyperthermia
This review will briefly summarize mechanisms of thermoregulation and provide a survey of pharmacologic agents that can lead to hyperthermia and provide an overview of the established and candidate molecular mechanisms that regulate the actual thermogenic processes in heat effector organs BAT and SKM.

Heat-related illness.
Initial treatments should focus on lowering core temperature through cold water immersion, and Hyperthermia and central nervous system symptoms should prompt an evaluation for heat stroke. Expand
Drug Fever
Investigation of which drugs were associated with drug fever reported from 1986 to 2007 found antibacterials remain the major class of drugs responsible for DF. Expand

Drug-induced hyperthermia in critical care
A review of the common classes of drugs that can induce hyperthermia, highlighting the deleterious effects of a sustained high temperature and outlining available treatments is outlined. Expand
Heat stroke
The effectiveness of cooling devices, drugs, and therapies in heat stroke remains inconclusive and further large studies are required to continue to evaluate these treatment strategies. Expand
