A febrile illness associated with a 'pox' exanthem and enanthem has been seen in 11 cases in the Transvaal. Clinically it bears a close resemblance to the rickettsialpox of New York, but preliminary laboratory studies do not support the view that the two diseases are identical. It is suggested that a-new disease is here descriptionbed.
