Abstract: Brazilian spotted fever (BSF) cases have been increasing in the state of Sao Paulo but no genomic information about local rickettsia isolated from humans has been well documented. We recovered spotted-fever group rickett-siae from a sample of patient blood cultured in Vero cells using the shell vial technique. Rickettsial DNA fragments (gltA, ompA, and, ompB genes) were detected, and analysis of the ompB gene base sequences showed identity with the Rickettsia rickettsii ompB sequence available in the GenBank.
