Abstract

A patient with asplenia and multiple red blood cell transfusions acquired babesiosis infection with Babesia divergens–like/MO-1 organisms and not Babesia microti, the common United States species. He had no known tick exposure. This is believed to be the first transfusion-transmitted case and the fifth documented case of B. divergens–like/MO-1 infection.
