Babesia, which is parasitic on red blood cells in human or animals, has been mainly distributed in trophical and subtrophical
region so far, but shows also increasing global distribution by the effect of global warming.
Babesia-related disease is distributed globally in livestocks. It is mediated by 3 kinds of ticks in their hosts, which are found
in Korea also.
Once-infected animal may mediate infection of those microbials to other animals, and would give huge damage to livestock
farmers. Especially patients who were infected
by B. bovine, B. divergens or B. microti were reported in Korea on 1990 .
Babesia-infected human or animal shows symptons including anemia by hemolysis, fatigue, loss of appetite, headache,
high fever and chill at 1-4 weeks after infection. It may result in fatality if an immune suppressed animal is infected.
