Relapsing fever (RF) is a disease caused by several spirochetes of the genus Borrelia. Relapsing fever borrelioses are characterized by recurrent febrile episodes and spirochetemia. There are 2 forms; louse-borne relapsing fever (also known as urban or epidemic RF) is caused by Borrelia recurrentis, and is transmitted by the body louse Pediculus humanus humanus. It currently known in Ethiopia. Endemic tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) is a zoonotic disease transmitted worldwide by softbody ticks of the genus Ornithodoros. It is caused by at least 15 distinct Borrelia species throughout the world, including Borrelia hermsii and Borrelia turicatae, carried by the ticks Ornithodoros hermsii and O.turicatae respectively (modified from PubMed 16965346). B.turicatae is pathogenic in dogs and is found in Florida, Texas and Kansas. Strain 91E135 was isolated in 1991 in Texas. Like B.hermsii, B.turicatae evades the mammalian immune system by periodically switching expression among members of two multigene families that encode immunogenic, antigenically distinct outer surface proteins (modified from 16081922).
