My educated guess -- based on the transliteration of "macholeria" -- would be two possibilities. One would be "malaria" and the other would be "from cholera".

It is written in Yiddish. In Hebrew you spell it differently.

Cholera is an infection in the small intestine caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae
