Abstract

Three patients with fever, exanthem, headache, and central-nervous-system involvement were diagnosed with Rickettsia felis infection by specific PCR of blood or skin and seroconversion to surrogate Rickettsia antigens. Although R felis's relationship to other Rickettsia species is known and the pathogenic potential of this clade is well documented, R felis's role as a pathogen has not been fully understood.
