Q-fever in Bulgaria has the nature of a widespread endemic disease. The main reservoir of Q-fever are the domestic animals, among which cattle have the most importance. Together with this, natural foci of the disease exist in the country. In man the disease proceeds mainly in two forms -- pulmonary and less often, purely febrile. Based on their properties, the local strains of C. burneti isolated from man, domestic and wild animals and from ticks are no different from the European strains.
