Diagnosis and Treatment of Fevers of Unknown Orgins

Fevers of unknown orgins typically reach a temperature of 101 F and continue periodically for at least three weeks without a known cause. Fever is a symptom of another condition, so the doctor will perform tests to determine possible causes. Causes of the fever could be infection, tumors or noninfectious inflammatory diseases. The doctor will explore factors such as your workplace, places you have visited, exposure to animals and family history.
