Well, your mother has been diagnosed as a case of malaria with liver dysfunction(SGOT high).
YES, malaria can have varied presentations in tropical countries and she can have that pattern of fever.
I think the doctor must have done many tests before confirming this as malaria and starting the therapy for it.
Well, wish your mother a happy and fast recovery.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
