EVALUATION OF TICK BITES ACCORDING TO ANATOMICAL REGIONS ON HUMANS IN THE LIGHT OF THE STUDIES IN TURKEY

Year 2015, Volume 4, Issue 2, 122 - 124, 31.08.2015

Abstract


Ticks and tick-borne diseases have a great importance worldwide and they affect animal and human health by sucking blood and also transmitting protozoan, bacterial, rickettsial, spirochethal and viral agents. The purpose of this study is to evaluate tick bite cases on humans with respect to anatomical regions retrospectively in Turkey. After screened 4413 tick bite cases, it was shown that most of bites were seen on lower and upper extremities, cranium-cervical region, thorax-abdomen and regio genitalia-inguinalis respectively, and also conjunctiva, palpebra and meatus acusticus externus are the regions of tick bite cases were seen less. Since ticks prefer frequently some of the body regions for attachment comparing to other regions on humans, it is suggested that some body parts like extremities, cranium-cervical region, thorax-abdomen and regio genitalia-inguinalis should examine primarily in endemic areas.

TÜRKİYE’DEKİ ÇALIŞMALAR IŞIĞINDA İNSANLARDAKİ KENE TUTUNMALARININ ANATOMİK BÖLGELERE GÖRE DEĞERLENDİRİLMESİ

Year 2015, Volume 4, Issue 2, 122 - 124, 31.08.2015

Abstract

Keneler ve kene kaynaklı hastalıklar dünya çapında büyük bir öneme sahiptir ve keneler kan emerek ve aynı zamanda protozoon, bakteriyel, riketsiyal, spiroketal ve viral etkenleri naklederek hayvan ve insan sağlığını etkilemektedir. Bu çalışmanın amacı Türkiye’de insanlarda kene tutunma vakalarını anatomik bölgelere göre geçmişe dönük olarak değerlendirmektir. 4413 kene tutunma vakasının taranması sonrası, birçok tutunmanın sırasıyla alt ve üst ekstremiteler, kranium-servikal bölge, toraks-abdomen ve genital-inguinal bölgelerinde ve aynı zamanda daha az olarak konjonktiva, göz kapağı ve dış kulak yolunda görüldüğü gösterilmiştir. Kenelerin insanların bazı vücut bölgelerini diğer bölgelerine kıyasla tutunmak için daha sık tercih etmesinden dolayı, ekstremiteler, kranium-servikal bölge, toraks-abdomen ve genital-inguinal gibi bazı vücut kısımlarının endemik bölgelerde öncelikli olarak muayene edilmesi önerilmektedir.
