Abstract/OtherAbstract:
R. typhi is one of the rickettsial species endemic in the Mediterranean countries and is associated with the zoonotic infection of murine typhus, which may have a complicated course especially in adult patients. Murine typhus in pregnancy has rarely been reported in the medical literature. We describe a case of murine typhus in a pregnant woman who was effectively treated with erythromycin.
