    Although recovery is usually complete in 1 to 2 mo and mortality is negligible, bacteremia may persist for months after clinical recovery, and prolonged (> 1 mo) doxycycline or macrolide treatment may be needed. Doxycycline 100 mg po bid for 28 days is given plus, if endocarditis is suspected, gentamicin 3 mg/kg/day IV for 2 wk. Researchers at Great Ormond Street Hospital have in the past claimed tackling a Trench fever with medicine before it is allowed to run its course, may slow recovery time, because the temperature can help to kill the bacteria causing the illness.
