Abstract

The emerging tick-borne bacterium Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis is the etiologic agent of neoehrlichiosis, a febrile illness that may be accompanied by vascular complications. Severe cases of neoehrlichiosis have been described in patients with hematologic malignancies and systemic rheumatic diseases. We present the first case of neoehrlichiosis in a patient with multiple sclerosis undergoing rituximab therapy. © 2017, Swedish Medical Association. All rights reserved.
