In order to evaluate the potential risks of human granulocytic anaplasmosis in Slovakia, blood and serum samples of hunters and foresters from the northern parth of Slovakia were tested. We present the first case of HGA from Slovakia confirmed by nested PCR amplification of the 16S rRNA gene fragment of A. phagocytophilum.
