It is endemic to the Andes Mountains of South America, especially in Peru, at 500 to 3000 meters above the sea level. Symptoms are fever, anorexia, malaise, nausea and/or vomiting. Research in this area has been limited and diagnostic and treatment guidelines are based on very low evidence reports. Carrion’s disease incidence is not found in France.
