Here is a quick mnemonic ” MURINE “ to remember about the Endemic (Murine) Typhus Rash
Endemic (Murine) typhus is a bacterial infection caused by Rickettsia typhi. It is typically transmitted to humans through fleas that infest rats and other rodents. The infection is most commonly found in tropical and subtropical regions.
The characteristic rash associated with endemic typhus usually appears within 4-7 days after the initial infection. The rash typically begins as small, flat, pink spots that may initially resemble flea bites. Over time, the spots can spread and merge together, forming larger patches of redness on the skin.
This can be valuable for patients as well as medical doctors, nurses & students doing their clinical rounds. You can also find it very useful for med exams like USMLE, NEET PG, FMGE, NExT & NCLEX exams
