What you'll learn

Globally, the majority of the population is affected by Rickettsia, which is a group of vector-borne organisms that cause acute febrile illnesses throughout the world. read more »»

The causative species can vary depending on the region, while the clinical presentations of rickettsial infection are similar. Rickettsia is typically vector-borne, transmitted by ticks, body lice, and fleas, and in most cases, humans are thought to be accidental hosts. The key to rickettsial infections is prevention. Prevention relies on avoidance of exposure to tick and flea bites, particularly when residing or traveling to endemic areas. These infections are caused by multiple bacteria from the order Rickettsiales and genera Rickettsia, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Neorickettsia, Neoehrlichia, and Orientia. Learn more about this case in this expert speaker presentation designed by Medvarsity and Dosily.
