A case of pyrexia of two months' duration ending in complete recovery is reported. All investigations were negative. The pyrexia did not respond to sulphadiazine or penicillin. On the 26th day of the illness the lymphatic glands of the posterior triangles of the neck, the groins and the axillae became enlarged and four days afterwards there developed a morbilliform rash which took a whole week to spread over the whole body including the palms and soles. The liver also became enlarged and tender at that time. No similar illness developed in any other member of the family.
