Rat-bite fever (Streptobacillus moniliformis)

Rat-bite fever is a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Streptobacillus moniliformis. It is usually transmitted through bites or scratches from infected rodents, primarily rats. However, it can also be contracted by handling rodents or through consumption of contaminated food or water.

The symptoms of rat-bite fever can vary, but common manifestations include fever, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, vomiting, and rash. If left untreated, the disease can lead to more severe complications such as endocarditis, meningitis, or pneumonia.

To reduce the risk of rat-bite fever, it is important to take preventative measures such as avoiding contact with wild or domesticated rodents, practicing good hygiene, and maintaining a clean living environment.

If you suspect you have rat-bite fever or have been exposed to rodents, it is crucial to seek medical attention promptly. The disease can be treated with antibiotics, and early detection and treatment can greatly improve the outcomes.
