Abstract

A case of pericarditis associated with Q fever is described. Transmission was probably via an arthropod vector, which was most likely the kangaroo tick Amblyomma triguttatum. Complete recovery occurred in association with the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents only. This is a rare presentation of Q fever implicating transmission by a novel vector.
