ICD-11 1F52 — Babesiosis

A disease caused by the protozoan parasite Babesia. This disease is characterised by reproduction and lysis of erythrocytes leading to symptoms that depend on the level of parasitaemia and immune status of the infected individual. This disease may present with fever, chills, malaise, myalgia, haemolytic anaemia, shock, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is through the bite of an infected tick (Ixodes), or vertical transmission. Confirmation is by identification of Babesia in a blood smear, or detection of antibodies against Babesia.
