A 64-year-old male was admitted to our division because of fever.
After admission, the patient was given β-lactam antibiotics intravenously because he had no eruption and eschar. However, the fever continued, and he became unconsciousness and DIC appeared. We diagnosed the patient as Tsutsugamushi disease from indirect fluorescent antibody technique. Minocycline was excellently effective.
Several reports of Tsutsugamushi disease without eruption have been given, so we must always be careful of Tsutsugamushi disease
