About spotted fever, trombiculiasis in Kumamoto in Japan, severe febrile thrombopenia syndrome (SFTS)
For illness that spotted fever, trombiculiasis in Japan, severe febrile thrombopenia syndrome (SFTS) happen for sucking blood of ixodids with these pathogenic microbes (ixodid harvest bug) Japan spotted fever, SFTS around West Japan including Kumamoto trombiculiasis of the Tohoku district patient is reported as far as is wide (figure 1).
Japanese spotted fever, SFTS run in spring in Kumamoto in ... autumn, and there is much number of patients, and trombiculiasis is reported in winter (figure 2).
