  • Comments

    Please Note:
    Some of the species included have only ever been documented in animals, but because differentiation of the various species is time-consuming and not always carried out when people present with symptoms, these species have been included.

    There is some indication of countries where a particular species has been found, but this does not mean that it is only present in the countries listed.

    Cat Scratch Disease

    Casued by infection with Bartonella, as a resut of a scratch by an infected cat. Lymph nodes, especially those around the head, neck, and upper limbs, become swollen. Additionally, a person with CSD may experience fever, headache, fatigue, and a poor appetite.


    Lyme Disease

    Caused by infection by Borellia, mainly B. burgdorferi, B. afzelii and B. garinii, but other strains have been included because they may also cause problems, many of which are probably not medically documented. Borrelia is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.


    Relapsing Fever

    Caused by infection with certain Borrelia and Rickettsia.  Transmitted through the bites of lice or soft-bodied ticks. Relapsing or recurring episodes of fever, often accompanied by headache, muscle and joint aches and nausea.

     

    Babesia

    Cause babesiosis /piroplasmosis. Common names of the disease include Texas cattle fever, redwater fever, tick fever, and Nantucket fever. Gives malaria-like symptoms. As a result, malaria is a common misdiagnosis for the disease. But for 25% of cases in adults and half of cases in children, the disease is asymptomatic or mild with flu-like symptoms.
