Anaplasmosis - Anaplasma phagocytophilum

Anaplasmosis is caused by the bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum and is transmitted to humans by tick bites primarily from the black-legged (deer) tick (Ixodes scapularis) and the western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificus). It was previously known as human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE) or human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA).  Typical symptoms include: fever, headache, chills, and muscle aches.  Usually, these symptoms occur within 1-2 weeks of a tick bite.
