Abstract

LAVAL, Enrique. Notes about other epidemics in Colonial Chile. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.577-579. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182015000600014.

In chronicles or in the historiography of the Colony in Chile there are few references about epidemics different to smallpox; like typhus, typhoid fever, dysentery, etc. Almost all, fast spreading in the country and some with high lethality, which led to overflowing the capacity of hospitals in the Chilean colonial period.

Keywords : Malsito; breakbone; flank pain; congo; ball of fire.
