ISDH Releases Advisory on Tick-Borne Diseases

In 2017, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) reported over 250 cases of tick-borne disease, including a pediatric fatality due to Rocky Mountain spotted fever. ISDH entomologists have already collected live ticks in Indiana in 2018. ISDH has released an advisory that provides information on the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of common tick-borne diseases in Indiana, along with some additional recommendations for health care providers. Hospitals are encouraged to share this advisory with their employees' practices and emergency rooms. Learn more.
