PMID:  10882949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe the first case of tick bite by Haemaphysalis megaspinosa. The tick was found on the skin at the right occipital area in a 5-year-old girl, who had gone on a picnic twice to a mountain 1 and 5 days before she noticed the tick. The tick was surgically removed. The tick was identified as an adult female of Haemaphysalis megaspinosa from its morphological characteristics. This is the first report of tick bite by Haemaphysalis megaspinosa.
