    'mezquina' can be understood as brief or unfortunate.
    'consabida' is expected, usual.
    An expected and unfortunate fever of sweat without delirium.

    If the phrase talks about a sentimental relationship, you can change the medical term delirium and write passion or something similar.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to translate this "una fiebre mezquina y consabida de sudor sin delirio" Is it correct to say " a miserable and habitual fever of sweat without delirium."?

    Thanks
