Relapsing fever

Relapsing fever

Relapsing fever is an umbrella term used to describe characteristic patterns of infection caused by a spiral bacterium called Borrelia. It owes its name to the classical presentation of a fever that spontaneously remits and relapses, helping, historically, to distinguish it from other infectious diseases that caused fever. It can be classified into two broad categories, dependent upon the vector that transmits it and ,thus, the particular species causing the infection.
