Treatment of True Intermittent Tertian Fever

  • François Du Port


The ardour of the tertian, that returns every third day, allowing a day’s rest between these episodes, is not ill-omened and does not last for long. For the bile that causes this ill is not persistent: and on that day when there is no rigor or burning fever nature can be restored by aliment, a time to open a vein, to relax the belly with a purge and to open the passages of the skin by warm baths: and moist food should be advised. Meat that is suitable is veal, chicken, hare and suckling-pig and pig’s trotters: and delicate fresh-water fish and fruit the stomach readily digests: but while the ill persists, vigour is restored by beaten eggs and juice of tisane.
