Abstract

Summary Mediterranean spotted fever is an eruptive disease caused by Rickettsia conorii. Endothelitis comes as a consequence of this infection. In this work we studied the electrocardiographic change of 9 patients with mediterranean spotted fever. Six had alteration of cardiac conduction. The pathogenic mechanism of vascular injury induced myocardial oedema. All patients with mediterranean spotted fever should be screened with an ECG.
