Diplorickettsia massiliensis has been recently isolated from Ixodes ricinus ticks. We screened 13,872 serum samples from patients in France with suspected tick-borne diseases and found three cases that had serological evidence of D. massiliensis infection; for one of these three cases, we obtained molecular evidence of an infection as well.
