Abstract

The authors call the attention to three pathogenic agents occurring in Hungary and capable of causing zoonotic infections, that might result in severe, potententially lethal infections in asplenic human patients. Two of these pathogens belong to the Babesia genus. Babesia divergens is a bovine pathogen, while Babesia microti infects mainly rodents. Both Babesia species cause human infection by tickbite. Babesias cause haemolysis and secondary hepatic, as well as renal dysfunction in humans. Capnocytophaga canimorsus occurs normaly in the oral cavity of dogs and cats. Humans usually become infected from the pets by biting. This bacterium species can cause septicaemia, following local wound infection, as well as endocarditis and meningitis. Both babesiosis, as well as C. canimorsus infection are curable by using appropriate antibiotic treatment, but they can be lethal in asplenic patients. The main means of prevention is appropriate information given by vets and human doctors to animal keepers.
