Title: Neurogenic fever in a patient with a chordoid glioma.
Issue Date: 17-Nov-2016

Abstract: Chordoid gliomas are rare tumours. Despite being considered low-grade neoplasms, recent reviews have reported generally poor prognosis due to complications involving severe hypothalamic symptoms. We report a patient aged 30 years with chordoid glioma. What makes this case report interesting is the presence of neurogenic fever, which was already present before the final diagnosis of the brain tumour and also several months after the surgical removal. Since the patient underwent a subtotal resection of the tumour, it remains unclear whether the fever was due to hypothalamic dysfunction or remnants of the tumour. We also performed temperature logging with a continuous-monitoring recording device.
