Tick-bite fever in pregnancy. A case report.

PMID:  3603318     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Despite the frequency of tick-bite fever in southern Africa and its doubtless occurrence in pregnancy, this report documents the first case in a pregnant woman. Consequently, the natural history of tick-bite fever in pregnancy and concomitant placental involvement must be regarded as conjectural. Accordingly a register has been opened by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of the Witwatersrand, for recording similar cases. At this stage of our knowledge, erythromycin 500 mg 6-hourly until 3-5 days after defervescence is the therapy of choice for such patients.
