Scrub typhus imported to Scandinavia.
Scand J Infect Dis 2006; 38(3):200-2SJ

Abstract

We present the first 3 cases of confirmed scrub typhus imported to Scandinavia. The patients were infected in Thailand, Laos and Sri Lanka, respectively. Treatment with ciprofloxacin and doxycycline lead to rapid cure in 2 of the patients, while the third patient, who was not treated, had a prolonged convalescence. Specific antibodies against Orientia tsutsugamushi, the causative agent of scrub typhus, were detected in all 3 cases.
