Temporal profile of body temperature in acute ischemic stroke: relation to stroke severity and outcome

Abstract

BACKGROUND Pyrexia after stroke (temperature ≥37.5°C) is associated with poor prognosis, but information on timing of body temperature changes and relationship to stroke severity and subtypes varies. METHODS We recruited patients with acute ischemic stroke, measured stroke severity, stroke subtype and recorded four-hourly tympanic (body) temperature… (More)
