Abstract

Scrub typhus though prevalent is under-reported in our country. It should be considered as an important differential diagnosis in a febrile patient with thrombocytopenia, deranged liver or renal functions, and B/L chest opacities. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment is rewarding and prevents morbidity and mortality.
