Abstract

Human monocytic ehrlichiosis is an emerging infection caused by Ehrlichia chaffeensis, but reinfection with this agent has not been described. We report a case of reinfection with E. chaffeensis after a 2-year interval in a 56-year-old liver transplant recipient with frequent tick attachments.
