Chronic Fever

Chronic fever can be caused by a variety of underlying factors. In Chinese medicine, it is often attributed to deficiencies of qi, blood, yin, and yang, or excess pathologies such as damp-heat, qi and blood stasis. In biomedical terms, chronic fever can be caused by lingering infections, autoimmune diseases, chronic inflammation, or malignancy. It is important to differentiate chronic fever from other types of fever and to identify the underlying cause in order to provide appropriate treatment.
