?. See Typhus.] (Med.)
Of or pertaining to typhus; resembling typhus; of a low grade

Typhoid fever, a disease formerly confounded with typhus,
but essentially different from the latter. It is
characterized by fever, lasting usually three or more
weeks, diarrh[ae]a with evacuations resembling pea soup in
appearance, and prostration and muscular debility,
gradually increasing and often becoming profound at the
acme of the disease. Its local lesions are a scanty
eruption of spots, resembling flea bites, on the belly,
enlargement of the spleen, and ulceration of the
intestines over the areas occupied by Peyer's glands. The
virus, or contagion, of this fever is supposed to be a
microscopic vegetable organism, or bacterium. Called also
enteric fever. See Peyer's glands.
Typhoid state, a condition common to many diseases,
characterized by profound prostration and other symptoms
resembling those of typhus.
