mite - Neotrombicula autumnalis (Shaw 1790) - in veterinary medicine.
Among the trombiculid
chiggers including the scrub typhus-transmitting Leptotrombidium species, only the larvae are human and animal ectoparasites.
tsutsugamushi through the bite of trombiculid
The bacterium maintains itself in trombiculid
mites, and small mammals serve as reservoir hosts in the natural life cycle of the mites.
irritans fleas, trombiculid
and mesostygmata mites, hard and soft ticks, and booklice (5,6).
tsutsugamushi, which is usually transmitted by trombiculid
mites in Asia, northern Australia, and the western Pacific region has never been described in Chile (4).
The disease is transmitted to humans by the bite of larvae of trombiculid
mites harboring the pathogen.
The disease is transmitted by the bites of larval trombiculid
mites (chiggers) that occur year round on grassy vegetation and is typically acquired by campers, trekkers, and visitors to rice paddies (2).
tsutsugamushi is transmitted vertically in mites (particularly Leptotrombidium species) by the transovarial route, and horizontally in rodents through trombiculid
larval (chigger) bites.
8%) of 427 adults with negative blood cultures admitted to Mahosot Hospital in Vientiane had scrub typhus, an infection caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi and transmitted by the bite of larval trombiculid
Scrub typhus, caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, is a severe febrile illness transmitted to humans by trombiculid
mites, which normally feed on rodents.
Scrub typhus, a rickettsial disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, is spread by biting larval trombiculid
