Eperythrozoonosis | definition of eperythrozoonosis by Medical dictionary
infection with hemophilic mycoplasmas previously grouped in the genus Eperythrozoon. The infection is mostly innocuous but in times of stress, e.g. in the presence of another disease, it may cause an acute anemia with fever. There is no hemoglobinuria. The infection is spread by insects and the disease may be seasonal as a result. In many cases the disease is a subacute one with illthrift as the main presenting sign.
