Disease Ontology:8 A parasitic protozoa infectious disease that has symptommild fevers and has symptom anemia described as malaria-like symptoms caused by a protozoan of genus babesia, which reproduce in red blood cells and cause hemolytic anemia. they are transmitted by ixodid ticks or by blood transfusion. babesiosis is a zoonotic disease.

MalaCards: Babesiosis, also known as human babesiosis, is related to ehrlichiosis and lyme disease, and has symptoms including thrombocytopenia/thrombopenia, hemolytic anemia and facial pain/cephalalgia/migraine. An important gene associated with Babesiosis is RPA4 (replication protein A4, 30kDa), and among its related pathways is Post-translational modification- synthesis of GPI-anchored proteins. The drugs quinine and quinine sulfate and the compounds ketamine and Ganglioside GT1b (d18:0/22:1(13Z)) have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, testes and heart.

CDC:4 Babesiosis is caused by microscopic parasites that infect red blood cells and are spread by certain ticks. In the United States, tickborne transmission is most common in particular regions and seasons: it mainly occurs in parts of the Northeast and upper Midwest and usually peaks during the warm months.
