European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases: Postgraduate Education Course

Practical Diagnosis of Arthropod-Borne Infections



• ESCMID Study Group for Coxiella, Anaplasma,Rickettsia and Bartonella (ESCAR)

• Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire Méditerranée-Infection, Marseille, France

• Eurotravnet Coordinating Center ECDC, Marseille, France


Course Coordinator

Pierre-Edouard Fournier, Marseille, France

Course Objectives

Arthropod-borne infections are caused by a variety of bacterial and viral agents, many of which are considered as emerging pathogens. The diagnosis of these infections is often delayed as their clinical presentations are diverse and few microbiology laboratories throughout Europe are able to detect and identify these pathogens. This course will teach the participants the various diagnostic aspects of arthropod-borne diseases, including cell culture, molecular detection, MALDI-TOF MS identification, serology, arthropod identification as well as updates on arthropod-borne infections by skilled experts. Lectures presenting state-of-the-art diagnosis and management of these infections will be followed by practical sessions in groups of 5 persons.


Target Audience

15 –30 clinical microbiologists and infectious disease specialists.
