Rickettsia is a genus of intracellular, gram-negative bacteria that requires a vector for transmission. Spotted fever caused by Rickettsia is endemic in our region (Albacete), especially in rural areas. We present a patient with an unusual variety of Rickettsial disease, characterised by papulovesicular lesions.

Keywords : Rickettsioses; Rickettsia Akari; Spotted Fever.
