There is no easy answer for this. Some fevers only last an hour or two, others last for days. People with serious infections or cancers or autoimmune diseases can have intermittent fevers for months to years. A classic infectious diseases consultation is the patient with fever of unknown origin or (FUO) most commonly caused by infections, but often by cancers or other diseases. Do you have a specific fever-related question or disease in mind?
