In medicine, a prodrome is an early sign or symptom (or set of signs and
symptoms), which often indicate the onset of a disease before more
diagnostically specific signs and symptoms develop. It is derived from
the Greek word prodromos, meaning "running before". Prodromes may be
non-specific symptoms or, in a few instances, may clearly indicate a
particular disease, such as the prodromal migraine aura.

For example, fever, malaise, headache and lack of appetite frequently
occur in the prodrome of many infective disorders.
