The liver is extremely vascular, meaning it will be the first organ affected by toxocariasis followed by the lungs, eyes, and in severe cases the heart.
Clinical symptoms: a) Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever: It is considered to be among the most severe of human infectious diseases, with a mortality rate of 20 to 25% unless it is treated with a suitable antibiotic. Naturally, the rickettsia is maintained by the transmission of infected female ticks to infected ova which afterwards hatch into infected larval offspring. When the ticks feed on small mammals with rickettsia in their blood, a low rate of acquisition of rickettsia occurs by uninfected ticks. This effect leads to the destruction of lines of infected
