Abstract

Hematooncologic patients often host rare or fastidious pathogens. Using 16S rDNA sequencing and transmission electron microscopy, we have identified 2 lymphoma patients infected with Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis. In both individuals, the clinical presentation suggested ehrlichiosis-like syndrome. We believe that molecular techniques open new vistas in the field of pathogen detection.
