Part Description

LP14555-4   Babesia microti
Babesia microti is a protozoan parasite that infects the red blood cells (RBCs) of humans. It is the infectious agent that causes Babesiosis and is the most common species to infect humans in the United States. Babesia microti is difficult to distinguish from the Plasmodium falciparum parasite that causes malaria, both on a stained blood smear and by the symptoms of infection. The initial diagnosis is most often the identification of the parasite in RBCs on a Geimsa-stained thin blood smear. Follow-up indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) testing is 88-96% specific for Babesia microti infection. Symptoms of infection are noticeable 1-8 weeks after the tick bite. Infection in 25% of adults and 50% of children by Babesiosis microti is asymptomatic. The less severe symptoms of infection include hemolytic anemia, jaundice, shortness of breath, hemoglobinuria, which occur during parasitic multiplication. Patients without spleens experience a much higher rate of RBC infection (85%) versus an RBC infection rate of 1-10% in patients with spleens. Splenectomized patients are more likely to be symptomatic when infected with Babesia microti and often die within 5-8 days. The vector of Babesia microti is the Ixodidae tick and the reservoirs are believed to be the white-footed mouse (Peromuscus Leucopus Rafinesque), the microtus vole (Microtus spp.) and the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus).[https://web.stanford.edu/group/parasites/ParaSites2009/NaikhobaManobi_Babesia/NaikhobaManobi_Babesia.htm] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
