Increasing babesiosis in Southeastern Pennsylvania, 2008-2017

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Tick-borne illnesses are increasing but are often underreported. Few cases of babesiosis have been reported from Pennsylvania. Our 4-hospital system in southeastern Pennsylvania saw a rise in cases from 7 or fewer yearly in 2008-2014 to 26 cases in 2015. There appear to be multiple potential causes of this increase in frequency.
