OBJECTIVE Despite numerous case reports on "psychogenic fever," it remains uncertain how psychological stress raises core temperature and whether the rise in core temperature is a real fever or a hyperthermia. This article reviews studies on the psychological stress-induced rise in core temperature (PSRCT) in animals with the aim to facilitate studies on the mechanisms of so-called psychogenic fever in humans. METHODS To address this question, we reviewed the mechanisms and mediators of the… CONTINUE READING
