human granulocytic ehrlichiosis

Infectious diseases Infection by Ehrlichia chaffeensis, a rickettsia-like organism genetically similar to E phagocytophila and E equi, transmitted by the Lyme disease tick, which may be associated with Lyme disease Clinical High fever, chills, sweating, myalgia, nausea and vomiting, headache, shaking chills, coughing, severe pain–like being 'hit by a bus,' followed by septic state Management Doxycycline. Cf Human monocytic ehrlichiosis.

A febrile disease causing headache and myalgia and sometimes involving the respiratory, digestive, and central nervous systems; caused by Anaplasma phagocytophaga, which is transmitted by ixodid ticks; laboratory findings include leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and inclusion bodies (morulae) in neutrophils.
