Several ticks that are found in the United States can

cause an illness similar to that of this patient. The

deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) transmits three

infections: Lyme borreliosis, human granulocytic

ehrlichiosis, and babesiosis. The Lone Star tick

(Amblyomma americanum), which is found in the southern

United States, and not in New England except for a

relict population in Narragansett Bay, is the main

vector of monocytic ehrlichiosis due to Ehrlichia

chaffeensis. The Dermacentor variabilis tick, also

known as the dog tick or the wood tick, can transmit

Rocky Mountain spotted fever or tularemia. The

ornithodoros tick is the only soft-body tick that

transmits infections to humans, specifically relapsing

fever, but this does not occur in New England.
