The prevalence of rickettsial antibodies in north-western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina was studied. Among 231 sera tested by complement fixation (CF) positive were: 61.5% for Rickettsia typhi, 4.3% for R. prowazekii, 1.7% for R. conorii and 19.0% for Coxiella burnetii. Of 183 sera tested by indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) 37.7% reacted with R. typhi, 1.6% with R. conorii and 22.4% with C. burnetii. The results show that at least R. typhi and C. burnetii are highly endemic in this area.
