Rare infectious diseases
Disease Ontology:11 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 based summary: Babesiosis, also known as human babesiosis, is related to tick infestation and ehrlichiosis, and has symptoms including hemolytic anemia, migraine and abnormality of temperature regulation. An important gene associated with Babesiosis is CCT7 (Chaperonin Containing TCP1 Subunit 7), and among its related pathways are Malaria and Reelin signaling pathway. The drugs quinine and quinine sulfate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, heart and pituitary.
CDC:2 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.
