• Mediterranean spotted fever is common in southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, but is unknown in the United States. It has a clinical picture resembling Rocky Mountain spotted fever, but it is a milder disease. We report a case of Mediterranean spotted fever in a young American woman returning from Morocco and review the clinical picture of this disease.
