DIAGNOSIS Several different tests are available to determine if a patient has RMSF. Culturing for the organism is rarely performed. An indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) can be performed on blood samples. Immunostaining of a biopsy of the rash can also be performed. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is now performed on blood and skin biopsies. Routine laboratory test results suggestive of RMSF include abnormal white blood cell count (leukocytosis: 11,000–30,000/mm3 after the ﬁrst week), thrombocytopenia, hyponatremia, or elevated liver enzyme levels.
