It has been a long time since I have heard about Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. I knew a kid a bit younger than me who got it and was hospitalized for days if not weeks. He did eventually recover but it was apparently touch and go for some time. he was not allowed out of bed.

Although it is spread by a distinctly different group of ticks from Lyme disease, and the causative agent, Rickettsia rickettsii is a distinctly different bacterium from the Lyme disease bacterium, we now know it can be treated by the same broad spectrum antibiotic, doxycycline (at least until it acquires resistance to it, and that will happen sooner or later, and the Lyme disease bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. will acquire resistance also). Let's just hope it is not anytime soon.

After reading all of the responses on this thread: A-ha the light just came on: now I know why the disciplines of medicine & law are referred to as "practicing medicine" or "practicing law". Wonder when they will have had enough "practice" and call it a definitive science ? I'm glad my eye surgeon had had enough "practice" and got it right the first time. Whew !!
