Epidemiology of tsutsugamushi disease and Japanese spotted fever in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan



Epidemiology of tsutsugamushi disease and Japanese spotted fever in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan



Japanese Journal of Infectious Diseases 59(4): 273-273



Serological investigations were conducted on 48 patients with scrub typhus in 2004 and 48 patients with Japanese spotted fever during 2000-04 in Japan. The results showed that scrub typhus and Japanese spotted fever occurred most frequently during October-April and April-December, respectively. Most of the scrub typhus cases were males (male:female, 9:7) and in their 60s; whereas most of the Japanese spotted fever cases were females (male:female, 3:5) and in their 70s.
