        I have read that malaria causes one's temperature to vary over a
three-day cycle. My temperature varies about 1.5 degrees F on a four-day
cycle. My blood pressure varies on the same cycle. Is there any known
pathogen that causes temperature and/or BP to vary on a four-day cycle?

        Is there a technical term for these variations? I haven't had much
luck finding anything in PubMed so far. Thanks.
