  • Trench fever

    Tench fever is a louse-borne disease caused by Bartonella quintana and observed originally in military populations during World Wars I and II. Symptoms are an acute, recurring febrile illness, occasionally with a rash. Diagnosis is by blood culture. Treatment is with a macrolide or doxycycline. 5.4 million cases were reported in India affaected with Trench fever. Fever is NOT the disease but is your body fighting the disease, so if you lower the fever you make it harder for the body to fight the bacteria/virus and more likely to get serious complications from the germ.

    Tetracycline-group antibiotics (doxycycline, tetracycline) are commonly used. Chloramphenicol is an alternative medication recommended under circumstances that render use of tetracycline derivates undesirable, such as severe liver malfunction, kidney deficiency, in children under nine years and in pregnant women. The drug is administered for seven to ten days.

    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.
