CDC:4 Ehrlichiosis is the general name used to describe several bacterial diseases that affect animals and humans. Human ehrlichiosisis a disease caused by at least three different ehrlichial species in the United States: Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Ehrlichia ewingii, and a third Ehrlichia species provisionally called Ehrlichia muris-like (EML). Ehrlichiae are transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected tick. The lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum) is the primary vector of both Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Ehrlichia ewingii in the United States. Typical symptoms include: fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle aches. Usually, these symptoms occur within 1-2 weeks following a tick bite. Ehrlichios is diagnosed based on symptoms, clinical presentation, and later confirmed with specialized laboratory tests. The first line treatment for adults and children of all ages is doxycycline.  Ehrlichiosis and other tickborne diseases can be prevented.

MalaCards: Ehrlichiosis, also known as human ehrlichiosis, is related to human monocytic ehrlichiosis and human granulocytic anaplasmosis, and has symptoms including rash, fatigue and muscle aches. An important gene associated with Ehrlichiosis is MAP2 (microtubule-associated protein 2), and among its related pathways are Phagosome and HIF-1 signaling pathway. The compounds nocodazole and ionomycin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include leukocyte, monocytes and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are nervous system and hematopoietic system.

Disease Ontology:8 A primary bacterial infectious disease that results in infection located in leukocyte, has material basis in ehrlichia chaffeensis or anaplasma phagocytophilum, which are transmitted by lone start stick and transmitted by black-legged tick respectively. the infection has symptom headache, has symptom muscle aches, has symptom fatigue and has symptom rash.
