Babesia microti and Anaplasma phagocytophilum was recently reported with a minimum prevalence of 0.9 and 1.3% in Hungary based on the PCR-sequencing analysis of 452 European sheep ticks (Ixodes ricinus). These results and the epidemiological data of the neighbouring countries indicate that human cases caused by these pathogens may occur in the country. The aim of the present paper is to summarise the current knowledge on the morphology, life cycle and distribution of B. microti and A. phagocytophilum, and the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and control of babesiosis and granulocytic anaplasmosis.
