Colorado Tick Fever (CTF) also called (Mountain tick fever, Mountain fever, and American mountain fever) is an acute viral infection transmitted from the bite of an infected wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni) a member of the Coltivirus genera. CTF infects haemopoietic cells especially erythrocytes, which explains how the virus is trasmitted by bloodsicking ticks and also accounts for the incidence of transmission via blood transfusion. The disease develops from March to September, with the highest infections occurring in May and June. The disease is found almost exclusively in the western United States and Canada, mostly in high mountain areas such as Colorado and Idaho. The CTF virus was first isolated from human blood in 1944. The virus particle, like other Coltiviruses, is ~80 nm in diameter and is generally non-envolped. The double stranded RNA viral genome is ~20,000bp long and is divided into 12 segments, which are termed Seg-1 to Seg-12.
