An intermittent, the paroxysms of which recur every fourth day, leaving between them two days' interval. We speak also of the Quartan Type. A Double Quartam, (F.) Double quarte, is one in which one paroxysm occurs on the third and another on the second day, so that there is only one day of apyrexia and two of paroxysms in succession; - the paroxysms of every fourth day resembling each other. A Triple Quartan is one in which there is a paroxysm every day; and on every three days the paroxysms correspond. A redoubling or repeating quartan, (F.) Fievre quarte doublee, is one in which there are two paroxysms every fourth day. See Intermittent.
