hello, fever pattern with rigors which comes in episodes looks like malarial fever due to mosquito bite to your mother. So to diagose you should have to do some blood investigations like C.B.C, SEROLOGICAL TEST FOR MALARIA PARASITE, widal test, platelet count, bsl (fasting and PP), Urine test etc.Visit to physician for further treatment. Hope this may helped to you. thansx for sharing.
