Abstract

Relapsing fever has been a major epidemic disease in Europe and Africa. It is transmitted by tick or louse and has two types, LBRF and TBRF. Patients have repeated episodes of fever and other symptoms. The cause of infection is Borrelia species of bacteria. It is treated by antibiotics and single doses are preferred over multiple doses because multiple doses are difficult to implement.
