Anaplasma phagocytophilum (strain HZ) is an intracellular vector-borne pathogen that causes human ehrlichiosis. It depends on hematophagous ticks as a vector and wild mammals as a reservoir host. It is transmitted by Ixodes spp. A.phagocytophilum is the causative agent of human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA), formerly recognized as human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE). HGA is indistinguishable from human monocytic ehrlichiosis (HME), caused by Ehrlichia chaffeensis. Prior to 1994, only ruminant and equine ehrlichiosis were known to be caused by A.phagocytophilum. This organism is one of the leading causes of ehrlichiosis in the world.
