Tick-borne diseases

Disease / public health area

Alkhurma haemorrhagic fever

Alkhurma haemorrhagic fever is a viral haemorrhagic disease reported mainly in Saudi Arabia. Transmission is through tick bites and contact with infected blood.

Disease / public health area

Babesiosis

Babesiosis is an illness caused by a parasite, which infects and destroys the red blood cells. The disease is transmitted mainly by ticks, vector in Europe is mainly Ixodes ricinus.

Disease / public health area

Borreliosis

Borreliosis/Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of infected ticks. Most cases can be treated with antibiotics. No vaccine is available.

Disease / public health area

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever is an emerging pathogen in Europe. Outbreaks have a case fatality rate between 5% and 40%. There is no validated therapy and no safe vaccine.

Disease / public health area

Human granulocytic anaplasmosis

Human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA) is a tick-borne infection caused by the bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum, a small bacterium infecting typically neutrophils transmitted by Ixodes ticks.

Disease / public health area

Rickettsiosis

Rickettsiosis/rickettsioses are a group of diseases generally caused by species of Rickettsia. Most of the Rickettsioses are transmitted by ticks.

Disease / public health area

Tick-borne encephalitis

Tickborne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral infectious disease that attacks the central nervous system and can result in long-term neurological symptoms, and even death.

Disease / public health area

Tick-borne relapsing fever

Tick-borne relapsing fever is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected soft ticks. The disease is characterised by relapsing or recurring episodes of fever, often accompanied by headache, muscle and joint aches and nausea.
