Rickettsia is a genus of non-motile, Gram-negative, and highly pleomorphic bacteria. Their survival depends on entry, growth, and replication within the cytoplasm of eukaryotic host cells. Rickettsia species are carried by many ticks, fleas, and lice, and cause a variety of diseases in humans. Rickettsia is classified into three groups: spotted fever, typhus and scrub typhus. Original classification was based on serology and has since been confirmed by DNA sequencing.

Rickettsia typhus group and associated illnesses include R typhi (Murine typhus) and R prowazekii (epidemic, recrudescent and sporadic typhus).
