Abstract

At the clinical and epidemiological levels, study of SFG rickettsioses requires investigation of the natural history of R. sibirica infection in China. In Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, and Heilongjiang, antibodies to SFG rickettsiae are detected in the sera of 11%-62% of the population of several areas. Longitudinal clinical studies are needed to determine the proportion of patients manifesting an eschaer, a rash, visceral involvement, prolonged febrile illness, or complications of this Asian SFG rickettsiosis.
