Rickettsia slovaca and R. raoultii in tick-borne Rickettsioses.

Parola P, Rovery C, Rolain JM, Brouqui P, Davoust B, Raoult D - Emerging Infect. Dis. (2009)

Bottom Line: Tick-borne lymphadenopathy (TIBOLA), also called Dermacentor-borne necrosis erythema and lymphadenopathy (DEBONEL), is defined as the association of a tick bite, an inoculation eschar on the scalp, and cervical adenopathies.We identified the etiologic agent for 65% of 86 patients with TIBOLA/DEBONEL as either Rickettsia slovaca (49/86, 57%) or R. raoultii (7/86, 8%).

Typical signs of TIBOLA (tick-borne lymphadenopathy)/DEBONEL (Dermacentor-borne necrosis erythema and lymphadenophy). Here, infections were caused by Rickettsia slovaca , resulting in cervical lymphadenopathy (left panel, arrow), inoculation on the scalp (middle panel), and residual alopecia 4 weeks later (right panel).

Figure 2: Typical signs of TIBOLA (tick-borne lymphadenopathy)/DEBONEL (Dermacentor-borne necrosis erythema and lymphadenophy). Here, infections were caused by Rickettsia slovaca , resulting in cervical lymphadenopathy (left panel, arrow), inoculation on the scalp (middle panel), and residual alopecia 4 weeks later (right panel).

Mentions: We included all patients with TIBOLA/DEBONEL symptoms (Figure 2) and those who had an isolated tick bite on the scalp without any symptoms from whom samples (serum, skin biopsy, or ticks harvested from the scalp) were received at our laboratory from January 2002 through December 2007. Epidemiologic and clinical data were collected retrospectively. The study was approved by the ethics committee of the Medicine School of Marseille under reference 08-008.
