Oakley, Regina; Dreyfus, Anou; Concha, Gustavo; Poppert, Sven; Plag, Michèle; Meile, Celine; Graves, Stephen; Paris, Daniel H; Kann, Simone (2024). Seroprevalence of Coxiella burnetii in an Indigenous Population from the Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta, Colombia. American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 110(1):155-158.

Abstract

ABSTRACT.
Coxiella burnetii is an underreported zoonotic pathogen in many rural regions globally. We investigated C. burnetii exposure in a remote indigenous tribe residing in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. The high seroprevalence of 35% (95% CI, 27–43%) demonstrates the need for One Health studies to identify risk factors, clinical impact, and potential medical, veterinary, and environmental interventions.
