Investigation on rickettsial diseases in Madagascar. II. Rickettsia conori: tick-bite fever



Investigation on rickettsial diseases in Madagascar. II. Rickettsia conori: tick-bite fever



Archives de l' Institut Pasteur de Madagascar 41(1): 49-54



Rickettsial infections transmitted by ticks are rarely reported in Madagascar, although they are common in many parts of Africa. Three cases were recorded in Europeans in 1943-47 and four positive serological reactions indicative of Rickettsia conori were obtained in 1964, but there was no subsequent confirmed evidence of infection on the island. A study of human and animal sera was therefore undertaken.
