The organisms are transmitted by ticks, particularly Ixodes species, with rodents and deer serving as reservoir hosts in the northeastern United States, white-footed mice are the implicated main reservoir of not aaplasma Anaplasma but also Borrelia burgdorferi. Serologic and clinical evidence of canine ehrlichiosis and serologic evidence of human ehrlichiosis have been reported in Chile 34.

Footnotes Published ahead of print 12 March The clinical syndrome is one of acute onset, severe anemia with icterus, fever, anorexia, dehydration and depression. Anaplasma platys Dumler et al. The disease is transmitted by several species of ticks and is called tick-borne fever.
If they survive, several days after the onset of signs, the number of parasites anaplssma very low and anemia is plwtys macrocytic and hypochromic with reticulocytosis. Enterotoxigenic Enteroinvasive Enterohemorrhagic O Anaplasma platys infection induces platelet phagocytosis as a consequence of direct injury or immune-mediated destruction 3 ; moreover, the increase in circulating monocytes of dog 1 and bone p,atys monocyte and macrophage hyperplasia and platelet phagocytosis observed in both dogs may be related to an overwhelming A.

Blood samples were obtained from 30 pet dogs seen in a private veterinary clinic in Santiago, Chile, with tick infestation and clinical signs compatible with ehrlichiosis hemorrhagic manifestations and thrombocytopenia.
However, none of these cases have been confirmed by molecular assays. Cyclic thrombocytopenia induced by a Rickettsia-like agent in dogs.
