Haverhill fever

An infection by Streptobacillus moniliformis marked by initial chills and high fever (gradually subsiding), by arthritis usually in the larger joints and spine, and by a rash occurring chiefly over the joints and on the extensor surfaces of the extremities; “Haverhill fever” is used to indicate S. moniliformis infections not associated with rat bite but resulting from contaminated food or water.
