Set point difference: Fever is due to an increase in the temperature regulatory set-point. This can be from many things, usually infection, but can be medications, cancer, (the list is large). Hyperthermia occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. The set point is the same, the body just can't get the temperature down to the set point. Again many causes, heat stroke most common. ...Read more
