Navajvara (नवज्वर, “primary fever”) refers to one of the three types of fever (jvara).—If a healthy man, free from fever for a long time, is attacked with it, such a fever is called nava-jvara. Nava-jvara is of two kinds, viz. that caused by one’s own self, due to unhealthy diet, actions, and habits; and that caused by external agencies.
