  • Trench fever

    The term trench fever refers to the crowded conditions in which troops fought in during World War I and World War II. Erythromycin and azithromycin are both used to treat trench fever.

In fact, relapses have been reported to occur as long as 10 years after the first episode. First, no cure for trench fever was found and the disease continued to be a severe drain on army manpower throughout much of the conflict.
