n. pl. anaoplas·moses (-mō′sēz)
Infection with parasitic rickettsiae of the genus Anaplasma, especially A. phagocytophilum, formerly classified as Ehrlichia phagocytophilum, that are transmitted by ticks and produce manifestations in humans similar to those of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, including rash, muscle pain, and fever.

anaplasmosis

(an″ă-plaz-mō′sĭs) [ Anaplasma + -osis]
Infection with species of Anaplasma. Although the disease is usually found in cattle, humans may sometimes contract it after a tick bite. Anaplasmosis is characterized by fevers, chills, muscle aches, headache, and interstitial pneumonia.

anaplasmosis

a disease caused by Anaplasma spp. In cattle it is a chronic, often remitting disease characterized by fever, jaundice, emaciation and anemia, but never hemoglobinuria. It is transmitted by a number of insect vectors, especially ticks. In sheep and goats the disease is subclinical. See also babesiosis.
