Relapsing fever

Relapsing fever is caused by a bacterial infection transmitted either by ticks (tick-borne relapsing fever) or by the human body louse (louse-borne relapsing fever). It generally presents with asymptomatic periods alternating with a high fever, muscle/joint aches, nausea, and headache. Find the latest research on relapsing fever here.
