||The prevalence of rickettsial diseases was assessed in Sicily (Italy) with special attention to possible occupational exposure, due to a high number of cases reported in the press. Epidemiological data showed that Sicily was indeed the Italian region where most cases of rickettsiosis occurred. Analysis of the clinical data showed that an occupational risk existed among small farmers, and that there was also a risk for other subjects active in rural areas, due to contact with infected dogs.
