Abstract

Scrub typhus is an acute febrile widespread disease in Asia & Pacific islands which causes unspecific symptoms & signs.

Scrub typhus, a dreaded disease in the pre-antibiotic era, is an important military disease which caused thousands of cases in the Far East during World War. It is a zoonosis and is a widespread disease in Asia and the Pacific Islands. Scrub typhus is an acute febrile illness which generally causes non-specific symptoms and signs. The clinical manifestations of this disease. Deaths are attributable to late presentation, delayed diagnosis, and drug resistance. The public health importance of this disease is underestimated because of difficulties with a clinical diagnosis and lack of laboratory methods in many geographical areas.
