are the most common febrile illness in patients returning from international travel.
Anecdotal reports have indicated close temporal relationship between AOSD and various infections, which may suggest infectious triggers for developing AOSD, but rickettsial diseases
were rarely reported.
8) Ocular signs of rickettsial disease
are more common.
Ecologist Chi-Chien Kuo and colleagues from the University of California, Davis, and the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control set out to study the ecology of rickettsial diseases
in the abandoned fields of Hualien County, once a major center of rice production.
Canine Monocytic Ehrlichiosis is a rickettsial disease

22) Like spotted fever group rickettsial diseases
, Q fever is a tick-associated zoonosis, with an extremely wide host range.
Strategies for detecting rickettsiae and diagnosing rickettsial diseases
Another may be that doxycycline, the most effective treatment option for all rickettsial diseases
(6), is easily administered for suspected cases of rickettsiosis with no differential diagnosis.
Testing at CDPH's Viral and Rickettsial Disease

A microbiologic diagnosis of recent rickettsial disease
was in most cases based on immunofluorescence antibody (IFA) tests and, occasionally, on PCR and Western blot.
Although hemorrhages have not been described for rickettsialpox, dissimilarities in the clinical features of rickettsial disease
