A disease said to be endemic, (F.) Endemique, or to arise from endemicity, (F.) endemicite, when it is owing to some peculiarity in a situation or locality. Thus, ague is endemic in marshy countries; goitre at the base of lofty mountains, &c. Some authors use the term in the same sense as epidemic. We have no accurate knowledge of the emanations or other circumstances which give occasion to endemic affections. We seem to know that some emanation from marshy lands does produce intermittents: but we are ignorant of the nature of such emanation.
