Clinical examination revealed icteric visible mucous-membrane, dehydration, high fever (105oF), increased respiratory rate and enlarged superficial lymph nodes with presence of ticks on body surface. Urinalysis revealed haemoglobinuria. Haematological findings revealed severe anemia (Hb- 2.2 g/dl) and thrombocytopenia (88 ×105/µl). Serum biochemistry showed elevated BUN (102 mg/dl), creatinine (3.2 mg/dl), ALT (160 U/L) and total bilirubin (2.8 mg/dl). Microscopic examination revealed Babesia gibsoni in RBC’s. On the basis of history, clinical findings and laboratory examination the case was diagnosed as Babesiosis.
