Anaplasmosis is a disease caused by the bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum. These bacteria are spread to people by tick bites primarily from the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis) and the western blacklegged tick (Ixodes pacificus). Typical symptoms include fever, chills, sweats, severe headache, and muscle aches. Usually, these symptoms occur 1-2 weeks following a tick bite. Anaplasmosis is diagnosed based on symptoms, clinical presentation, and confirmed with laboratory tests ordered by a healthcare provider. The first line of treatment for adults and children of all ages is doxycycline. Anaplasmosis and other tickborne diseases can be prevented.
