Abstract

A serologic relationship between , the etiologic agent of human sennetsu rickettsiosis in western Japan, and , the agent of canine ehrlichiosis, has been demonstrated. Using the indirect fluorescent antibody test, convalescent sera from patients with sennetsu fever reacted with antigen. In the direct fluorescent antibody test, immunoglobulins from four patients with sennetsu rickettsiosis stained morulae in canine monocytes. This finding is significant in view of the morphologic uniqueness of the two agents and a lack of serologic relatedness with other major rickettsial agents.
