Brill's disease has been shown to be recrudescent epidemic typhus fever. The strains of rickettsiae isolated from cases have the charateristics of epidemic typhus rickettsiae and differ from murine typhus rickettsiae. Six cases of Brill's disease occuring in Johannesburg have been seen during the past decade. One case is descriptionbed in detail.
