Anaplasmataceae–Specific PCR For Diagnosis And Therapeutic Guidance For Symptomatic Neoehrlichiosis In Immunocompetent Host
Polymerase Chain Reaction
RNA, Ribosomal, 16S
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4734524
Description:Candidatus Neoehrlichia is increasingly being recognized worldwide as a tickborne pathogen. We report a case of symptomatic neoehrlichiosis in an immunocompetent Austria resident who had recently returned from travel in Tanzania. The use of Anaplasmataceae-specific PCR to determine the duration of antimicrobial therapy seems reasonable to avert recrudescence.
