    Measures to control rodents have resulted in a decreased incidence of murine typhus, but it is also likely that it is being underdiagnosed because many medical practitioners do not include it in their differential diagnosis of pyrexia of unknown origin. Four recent cases are described, and historical aspects of this disease in Australia are presented.
