Epidemiology of boutonneuse fever in western sicily italy distribution and prevalence of spotted fever group rickettsial infection in dog ticks rhipicephalus sanguineus


, : Epidemiology of boutonneuse fever in western sicily italy distribution and prevalence of spotted fever group rickettsial infection in dog ticks rhipicephalus sanguineus. American Journal of Epidemiology 123(4): 721-727

The distribution and prevalence of spotted fever group rickettsial infection in the ixodid dog tick Rhipicephalus sanguineus were found to occur at a rate of 19.7% with variation related to geographic and socioocupational factors. A higher rate of infection was demonstrated in ticks removed from dogs associated with documented cases of boutonneuse fever. The results fit into available clinical and seroepidemiologic data on Rickettsia conoril infection in western Sicily.
