Clinical Information
  • A group of tick-borne diseases of mammals including zoonoses in humans. They are caused by protozoa of the genus babesia, which parasitize erythrocytes, producing hemolysis. In the United States, the organism's natural host is mice and transmission is by the deer tick ixodes scapularis.
  • A parasitic infection caused by babesia. It is transmitted by ticks and infects the red blood cells. Signs and symptoms include fever, fatigue and hemolytic anemia.
  • Tickborne disease caused by infection with protozoa; occurs in wild and domestic animals; in humans causes malaria-like symptoms, myalgia, nausea and splenomegaly; classic zoonotic disease.
