The factors which may be responsible for the development of azotemia in severe infectious diseases have been recently reviewed.1 The diagnosis of azotemia depends upon the biochemical analysis of the patient's blood in a well-equipped laboratory. In typhus fever it is to be expected that under the extremely adverse conditions of hospitalization which are frequently found during epidemics of this disease, azotemia may be unrecognized in many patients. It is, therefore, understandable why comparatively little information on the subject of azotemia is found in the general literature on typhus.
