Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Ehrlichia Species - Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis

In North America, ticks are primary vectors of infectious diseases. Some of the most common tickborne diseases in the U.S. include Lyme disease, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Anaplasmosis, tickborne relapsing fever, and tularemia. Other tickborne diseases include Colorado tick fever, Powassan virus, and spotted fever rickettsioses. Because many tickborne illnesses have similar clinical presentation, laboratory testing can aid in determining the proper course of treatment that can best minimize risk of severe disease.
