Typhus Fever

  • Typhus fever is a disease caused by bacteria (mainly Rickettsia typhi or R. prowazekii). There are two major types of typhus: endemic (or murine typhus) and epidemic typhus. The disease occurs after bacteria (Rickettsia spp.) are transferred to humans usually by vectors such as fleas or lice.Rickettsiae microorganisms appear to exert their pathologic effects by adhering to and then invading the endothelial lining of the vasculature within the various organs affected. The adhesins appear to be outer membrane proteins that allow the rickettsia to be phagocytosed into the host cell.
