Septicemia caused by tick-borne bacterial pathogen Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis


Fehr, J S; Bloemberg, G V; Ritter, C; Hombach, M; Lüscher, T F; Weber, R; Keller, P M (2010). Septicemia caused by tick-borne bacterial pathogen Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 16(7):1127-1129.

Abstract

We have repeatedly detected Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis, a bacterium first described in Rattus norvegicus rats and Ixodes ovatus ticks in Japan in 2004 in the blood of a 61-year-old man with signs of septicemia by 16S rRNA and groEL gene PCR. After 6 weeks of therapy with doxycycline and rifampin, the patient recovered.
