    Two "transitional group" (other) rickettsias cause spotted fever-like diseases: R. akari (rickettsial pox), and R. australis (Queensland tick typhus). Typhus Group (TG) Rickettsia prowazekii is the cause of epidemic or louse-borne typhus and is the prototypical bacterium from the typhus group of rickettsiae. TG rickettsiae include two species: R. prowazekii, the agent of epidemic typhus, and R. typhi, the agent of murine typhus. SFG rickettsiae include 16 validated species and numerous unvalidated rickettsial species. However, most of these named SFG rickettsiae are so closely related that they could be considered strains of a single species.

      Rickettsial diseases are widely distributed throughout the world in endemic foci and occur as sporadic and often seasonal outbreaks. Humans acquire rickettsial infections from infected ticks, lice, fleas, or mites. Ticks are the major reservoir of the spotted fever group rickettsiae, and various species have been isolated from ticks in Eurasia. Rickettsia is a genus of nonmotile, Gram-negative, nonspore-forming, highly pleomorphic bacteria that may occur in the forms of cocci ( μm in diameter), bacilli (1–4 μm long), or threads (up to about 10 μm long). The term "rickettsia" has nothing to do with rickets (which is a deficiency disease resulting from lack of vitamin D); the bacterial genus Rickettsia was named after Howard.

    Ticks and spotted fever rickettsiae in Portugal, p. – In D. Raoult and P. Brouqui (ed.), Rickettsiae and rickettsial diseases at the turn of the third millenium. Rickettsioses are arthropod-borne infections caused by bacteria belonging to the genus Rickettsia within the family Rickettsiaceae in the order Rickettsiales. Most of these zoonoses are transmitted by ticks, but some are vectored by lice, fleas, or mites. Tick-borne rickettsioses have specific geographic distributions, directly dependent on the distribution of their vectors.

Rickettsiae are bacteria that can only survive inside cells. Rickettsial diseases vary considerably in severity from self-limiting mild illnesses to severe life-threatening infections. Rickettsial diseases: The infectious diseases caused by the rickettsiae fall into 4 groups:(1) typhus: epidemic typhus, Brill-Zinsser disease, murine (endemic) typhus, and scrub typhus; (2) spotted fever-Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Eastern tick-borne rickettsioses, and rickettsialpox; (3) Q fever; and (4) trench fever.

Rickettsial diseases are acute, usually self-limited febrile illnesses caused by obligate intracellular Gram-negative bacteria of the order Rickettsiales. Rickettsiae can be divided into the spotted fever group and the typhus fever group.

All are transmitted by ticks, fleas, lice, or mites. The rickettsiae range in size from roughly to micrometre (μm) by to μm (1 μm = metre).Virtually all rickettsiae can reproduce only within animal cells. Rickettsiae are usually transmitted to humans by a bite from an arthropod carrier.

Because certain species can withstand considerable drying, transmission of rickettsia can also occur when arthropod feces are inhaled or. Rickettsial infection. Rickettsial infections are caused by a variety of obligate intracellular bacteria in the genus Rickettsia and are grouped into one of four categories: the spotted fever group rickettsiae, typhus group rickettsiae, the ancestral group, and the transitional group 1).Rickettsia species cause Rocky Mountain spotted fever, rickettsialpox, other spotted fevers, epidemic typhus.
