    Scrapie, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD), and related diseases of mink (transmissible mink encephalopathy), mule deer and elk (chronic wasting disease) are the founder members of a group of diseases called the transmissible degenerative (or spongiform) encephalopathies (TSE). These diseases can be transmitted by prions from affected to healthy .

Written from experts in the field from Europe, USA, Africa, and Asia About the Editors: Rickettsial diseases comprise infections caused by bacterial species of the genera Rickettsia (endemic and epidemic typhus and spotted fever group rickettsioses), Orientia (scrub typhus), Ehrlichia (ehrlichiosis), Anaplasma (anaplasmosis), Neoehrlichia, and Neorickettsia.

Red Book ® Rickettsial Diseases. Key Points. Rickettsia are obligate intracellular parasites, and must replicate within the cytoplasm of eukaryotic host cells.

Rickettsia species are carried by many ticks, fleas, and lice, and cause diseases in humans such as typhus, rickettsialpox, Boutonneuse fever, African tick bite fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Flinders Island spotted fever, and Queensland tick typhus (Australian Tick Typhus).

These diseases, caused by Rickettsia species and transmitted to humans by arthropod bites, are putatively lethal.

However, the diagnosis of CNS R is challenging and often delayed due to their nonspecific clinical presentation and. Rickettsial diseases are infections that you can get from some tick bites.

It occurs in the Orient from Japan to India, south to Australia, and it is transmitted by chlggers (mites). Many authorities believe that fleaborne typhus is the primitive form of the disease, well adapted to maintaining itself in a mild form in a rat reservoir and seldom killing the rat flea.

Rickettsial diseases have had a significant impact on public health and have been a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in both civilian and military populations.5 In addition, rickettsial pathogens continue to emerge and reemerge as causes of illness throughout the world.
