This occurs in the Mediterranean countries, India, China,
the Philippines and Porto Rico. The fever is irregular or marked by

intervals of "no fever" for two or more days with febrile relapses lasting

one to three weeks. Constipation, anemia (scarcity of blood), joint

symptoms and debility exist. Ordinary cases may last three months to two

years. Mortality two per cent.

Treatment. Like that for typhoid. Change climate, if possible.
