Climatic variation and distribution of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever and cowdriosis, tick-borne diseases in Senegal
2008 - Volume: 48 Issue: 3-4 pages: 155-161
Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever
The authors report on Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) virus isolations from ticks in Senegal, as well as IgG antibody prevalence in humans and sheep. These data were correlated to the relative abundance of potential tick vectors. Some data are also reported on bovine ehrlichiosis due to Ehrlichia ruminantium. The spatial patterns of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) and ehrlichiosis by ecological area allow a current cartography of these 2 diseases in Senegal and the follow-up of their further evolution.
