Insect-borne diseases

  • Pogosta disease
    Pogosta disease is a viral disease, established to be identical with other diseases, Karelian fever and Ockelbo disease.
  • Mosquito net
    A mosquito net offers protection against mosquitos, flies, and other insects, and thus against the diseases they may carry.
  • Plague (disease)
    Plague is an infectious disease that is caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis.
  • Carrion's disease
    Oroya fever or Carrion's disease is an infectious disease produced by Bartonella bacilliformis infection.
  • African trypanosomiasis
    African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is a parasitic disease of humans and other animals.
  • Lymphatic filariasis
    Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is a human disease caused by parasitic worms known as filarial worms.
  • Chagas disease
    Chagas disease, also known as American trypanosomiasis, is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi.
  • Visceral leishmaniasis
    Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), also known as kala-azar, black fever, and Dumdum fever, is the most severe form of leishmaniasis.
  • Cutaneous leishmaniasis
    Cutaneous leishmaniasis (also known as oriental sore, tropical sore, chiclero ulcer, chiclero's ulcer or Aleppo boil) is the most common form of leishmaniasis affecting humans.
  • Acanthocheilonemiasis
    Acanthocheilonemiasis is a rare tropical infectious disease caused by a parasite known as Acanthocheilonema perstans.
  • Onchocerciasis
    Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness and Robles disease, is a disease caused by infection with the parasitic worm Onchocerca volvulus.
  • Rift Valley fever
    Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a viral disease that can cause mild to severe symptoms.
  • Tularemia
    Tularemia is a serious infectious disease caused by the intracellular bacterium Francisella tularensis.
  • Filariasis
    Filariasis (or philariasis) is a parasitic disease caused by an infection with roundworms of the Filarioidea type.
  • Pneumonic plague
    Pneumonic plague, a severe type of lung infection, is one of three main forms of plague, all of which are caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis.
  • Dirofilariasis
    Dirofilariasis is an infection by parasites in the Dirofilaria genus.
  • Loa loa filariasis
    Loa loa filariasis is a skin and eye disease caused by the nematode worm Loa loa.
  • Tick-borne disease
    Tick-borne diseases, which afflict humans and other animals, are caused by infectious agents transmitted by tick bites.
  • Epidemic typhus
    Epidemic typhus (also called "camp fever", "jail fever", "hospital fever", "ship fever", "famine fever", "putrid fever", "petechial fever", "Epidemic louse-borne typhus," and "louse-borne typhus") is a form of typhus so named because the disease often causes epidemics following wars and natural disasters.
  • Arbovirus
    Arbovirus is a term used to refer to a group of viruses that are transmitted by arthropod vectors.
  • Erythema chronicum migrans
