ephemeral fever

an infectious disease of cattle caused by an arthropod-borne rhabdovirus of the genus Ephemerovirus, and is characterized by inflammation of mesodermal tissues. Clinically there is fever, muscle stiffness and shivering, lameness, enlargement of lymph nodes and recumbency. The disease is a nonfatal one and has an average course of 3 days—hence 3-day fever. The virus is transmitted by insect vectors, e.g. the sandfly, Ceratopogonidae spp. Called also 3-day sickness.
