Description Our treatise is aimed at providing a brief survey on ethiology, pathogenesis, risks of inception, clinical Picture, treatment pitfalls and prognosis of hypothermia and hyperthermia and possible interactions of these thermoregulation disorders with some other co-morbidities. It deals also with drugs and medicines including their potential unwanted side effects in these thermally abnormal conditions. The problems of hypothermia and hyperthermia in the senium (especially the late one) will be closely connected with labile homeostasis and the occurence of frailty syndrome which increases with the age. Permanently growing number of patients with polymorbidity of higher age tending to suffer from thermoregulation disorders and relatively small awareness of this issue in wider specialist (including medical) community have led us to come out with this topic in the form of survey treatise.
