I've heard of it mostly just in the German contexts, but in the German lores, when someone was shot by the elfshot, didn't they get a fever and die from what seemed like a terrable flu or something like that?

Haf I alle in myn Inglis layd,
In symple speechs as I couthe,
That is lightest in manne's mouthe.
Alle for the luf of symple men,
That strange Inglis cannot ken."
