Summaries for Boutonneuse Fever

Disease Ontology : 12 A spotted fever that has material basis in Rickettsia conorii subsp conorii, which is transmitted by dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus). The infection has symptom fever, has symptom eschar (usually single), has symptom regional adenopathy, has symptom maculopapular rash on extremities.

MalaCards based summary : Boutonneuse Fever, also known as mediterranean spotted fever, is related to brucellosis and vasculitis, and has symptoms including fever, eschar and regional adenopathy. An important gene associated with Boutonneuse Fever is TLR4 (Toll Like Receptor 4), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers. Affiliated tissues include endothelial, skin and eye, and related phenotypes are fever and abnormality of the plantar skin of foot
