The grip; an acute infectious disease possibly caused by Pfeiffer's bacillus, characterized by fever, catarrhal inflammation of the respiratory or gastroenteric tract, or profound nervous disturbances marked by headache, insomnia, convulsions, delirium, neuritis, or mental depression. Three chief types are recognized: respiratory, gastroenteric, and nervous, according as the symptoms referable to one or another of these systems predominate; serious affection of the circulatory system is also a frequent complication or sequel. It occurs in extensive epidemics or pandemics at intervals of years.
