Abstract

Mediterranean spotted fever (MSF) is endemic in the Mediterranean area. We carried out a retrospective study to investigate the association between socio-demographic and climatic factors and MSF incidence in northern Sardinia. We found that maximum temperature levels during the previous summer were associated with increases in MSF incidence.
