Medical Definition of Tick-borne diseases

1. Bacterial, viral, or parasitic diseases transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of infected ticks. The families ixodidae and argasidae contain many bloodsucking species that are important pests of man and domestic birds and mammals and probably exceed all other arthropods in the number and variety of disease agents they transmit. Many of the tick-borne diseases are zoonotic. (12 Dec 1998)
