A fever which present no interruption in its course. Continued fevers form a division in the class Pyrexiae of Cullen and include three genera, Synocha, Synochus, and Typhus. It is proper to remark, that some of the older writers make a distinction between the continual fever, febris continua,and the synochus or febris contineu. Thus, Rhases states that the synochus is a fever, which consists of one paroxysm from beginning to end; whilst the continua is allied to intermittents.
