Transmission of scrub typhus by needlestick from a patient receiving pefloxacin.

A nurse experience a needlestick during the care of a patient with scrub typhus, treated with pefloxacin (400 mg twice daily) and cefazolin. Seven days after the needlestick, pain and erythematous swelling developed at the tip of her left fourth finger, the site of the needlestick. Fever and headache developed 10 days later, and her skin lesion became a small vesicle surrounded by a dark erythematous area. The diagnosis of scrub typhus was made by a rising indirect immunofluorescent antibody titre, and her illness was improved with doxycycline.[1]
