genetic variants of anaplasma phagocytophilum in wild caprine and cervid ungulates from the alps in tyrol, austria.the occurrence of genetic variants of anaplasma phagocytophilum was studied in wild ungulates from the northern and central eastern alps in tyrol, austria. for this purpose, spleen samples collected from 53 game animals during the hunting season 2008/2009 (16 roe deer [capreolus capreolus], 10 red deer [cervus elaphus], 16 alpine chamois [rupicapra r. rupicapra], 7 alpine ibex [capra i. ibex], and 4 european mouflons [ovis orientalis musimon]) were analyzed. thirty-five animals originated from t ...201121323423
molecular analysis of anaplasma phagocytophilum and babesia divergens in red deer (cervus elaphus) in western austria.wild ungulates may act as reservoirs of various vector borne pathogens that can infect humans and domestic animals. in the present study, blood samples from 196 red deer (cervus elaphus) from western austria (vorarlberg, tyrol and salzburg) were collected on filter paper and tested for anaplasmataceae, piroplasmida, rickettsia and filarioid helminths using molecular tools. babesia divergens was detected in ten (5.1%) and anaplasma phagocytophilum in three (1.5%) of the 196 samples. filarioid hel ...201727417532
serological evidence for human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in western order to evaluate the seroprevalence of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in western austria, sera from 357 tyrolean blood donors were tested by an immunofluorescence assay. to assess the concomitant seroreactivity against borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, sera were further investigated by enzyme-linked immunoassay and western blot. thirty-two sera (9.0%) showed antibodies to anaplasma phagocytophilum at a titre of 1:128 or higher, and 30 (8.4%) were seroreactive against borrelia burgdorferi sen ...200312938008
first documented case of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in austria.we report the first documented case of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (hge) in austria. the infection was acquired near arzl in the surroundings of innsbruck in northern tyrol. except for a biphasic course of illness, presentation in this 33-year-old female patient was comparable to clinical findings observed in other european adults with high fever, transient thrombocytopenia, elevated levels of crp and ldh, arthralgias, myalgias, fatigue and subfebrile temperature. flu-like symptoms started a ...200312778780
