Hyperthermia is elevated body temperature due to a break in thermoregulation that arises when a body produces or absorbs more heat than it dissipates.

It is a sustained core temperature beyond the normal variance, usually greater than 39° C (° F).Hyperthermia or commonly known as fever is present when the body temperature is higher than 37ᴼC which can be measured orally, but ᴼC if measured per rectum. It occurs when the body is invaded by some bacteria, viruses, or parasites.

Sometimes the occurrence of fever may also be due to non- infectious factors like injury, heat stroke or dehydration.
