ABSTRACT: A 20-year-old man who had spent several weeks in Asia suffered
several attacks of fever, each lasting 1 day in a cyclic pattern. Initially he
was suspected to have malaria, but no parasites were found in a {*filter*} smear.
When he was readmitted to the hospital with high fever and shivering. Borrelia
spirochaetes were detected in a {*filter*} smear, leading to a diagnosis of
relapsing fever. He recovered immediately when treated with tetracycline.
