Abstract:

A report is presented on tick spotted fever. Study of the history of the disease in 2 hospitals disclosed that this disease was present 3 years before the research was started, and went under the diagnosis of grippe and typhus or an atypical typhus. Later doctors of these areas began calling it tick fever due to the presence of tick bites in amnestic and objective analysis. The illness appeared 2-3 or 5-6 days after the noted bites. Epidemiologically and clinically this disease does not compare with typhus fever.
