The artificial induction of fever as a therapeutic measure in peripheral vascular disease has been well demonstrated. Its value rests on an increase in the circulation through the extremities, as demonstrated by determinations of cutaneous temperature. Brown and his co-workers have shown that the temperature of the skin increases to a far greater degree than the temperature of the mouth when fever is artificially induced, and have expressed the belief that this excessive increase in temperature is due to vasodilation.
