|Abstract:||Five cases of murine typhus occurring on southwestern Kauai in 1998 are described, following an investigation by the Department of Health. Two cases also had concurrent leptospirosis. Recent habitat changes of peridomestic animals and their fleas may have increased the risk for developing murine typhus. Increased suspicion of typhus by island physicians and more aggressive rodent control activities are recommended.|
