Wild Rodents and Novel Human Pathogen Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis, Southern Sweden.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We examined small mammals as hosts for Anaplasmataceae in southern Sweden. Of 771 rodents, 68 (8.8%) were infected by Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis, but no other Anaplasmataceae were found. Candidatus N. mikurensis has recently been found in human patients in Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden, which suggests that this could be an emerging pathogen in Europe.
