Publisher's Note: Error in Table 1

Posted by plosntds_team on 14 Sep 2012 at 22:01 GMT

The presence in Morocco of Argasid ticks of the Ornithodoros erraticus complex, the vector of tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) in North Africa, has been known since 1919, but the disease is rarely diagnosed and few epidemiological data are available.

In Table 1, the blank cell located at the intersection of the column "Borrelia, species +*" and row "West Aiti Yadine" should contain the number "1."
