STARI is found in the southeastern and eastern U.S and is transmitted by the lone star tick (Ambylomma americanum). A rash similar to the rash of Lyme disease has been described in humans following bites of the lone star tick. The rash may be accompanied by fatigue, fever, headache, muscle and joint pains. This condition has been named Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness (STARI).
