Babesiosis (Red Water)

Babesiosis is a tick-borne infection that is fatal in a high proportion of cases. It is caused by a protozoan called Babesia and is found wherever ticks are prevalent. Ticks become infected when they feed on infected cattle and can pass Babesia onto the larvae they produce. Babesiosis is commonly called ‘Red Water’ as it causes the urine to develop a red colour.
