17 September 2022 (Saturday) - Anaplasmosis / Ehrlichiosis


This appeared in the Facebook Haematology Interest Group. As is (sadly) so often the way there was just a photo, and diagnoses ranging from piles through to dead for three weeks. That group would benefit so much from having the photos labelled.
But… Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichiosis are two closely related tick-borne bacterial diseases spread by the bite of infected ticks.
So far thety aren’t prevalent in the UK, but is can only be a matter of time…
