Abstract

Human ehrlichiosis is a common, emerging, tick-transmitted zoonosis. Although the majority of human infections are clinically silent or mild, there may be occasional severe, complicated, chronic, and fatal infections, even in patients with no previous medical problems. Because of the clinical pleomorphism, physicians should maintain an index of suspicion based on knowledge of the geographical distribution of the agents and the timing of tick-feeding and atypical disease.
