When a continual, remitting, or intermitting fever is accompanied with a frequent or copious evacuation of bile, either by vomit or stool, the fever is denominated bilious. [Buchan1785].
The common remittent fever of summer and autumn; generally supposed to be owing to, or connected with, derangement of the biliary system. [Dunglison1855]
Typhoid fever, Remittent fever or simple gastritis. [Appleton1904]
A term loosely applied to certain intestinal and malarial fevers. See typhus. [Thomas1907]."
Sounds like your average Spring Break phenomenon these days. That a respectable ancestor of ours actually died from it in 1860 just goes to show how pickled kids have gotten in the last 150 years.
