Human babesial infections in Europe
Brasseur P, Gorenflot A. Rocz Akad Med Bialymst. 1996;41(1):117-22.
The tick transmission of Babesia from infected animals to human has been clearly demonstrated. Including the first case described by Skaraballo in 1957 in Yugoslavia, 22 cases of human babesiosis have been reported in Europe. B. divergens, which is the most common pathogen for cattle, was involved in 17/22 cases.

Human babesiosis
Pruthi RK et al. Mayo Clin Proc. 1995 Sep;70(9):853-62. "We describe a 62-year-old man with babesiosis, outline his clinical course and response to therapy, and discuss the use of the polymerase chain reaction for the diagnosis and monitoring of the infection. .. The onset of the disease was insidious, with fatigue, fever, weight loss, intermittently discolored urine, and anemia. Computed tomography of the abdomen revealed a small, shrunken spleen with an irregular border. With treatment, the symptoms gradually resolved. Although peripheral blood smears were negative soon after therapy, Babesia microti DNA was detected by polymerase chain reaction 53 days after initial examination.

Infection with a babesia-like organism in northern California
Persing DH et al. N Engl J Med. 1995 Feb 2;332(5):298-303.
Recently, infection with an unusual babesia-like piroplasm (designated WA1) was described in a patient from Washington State. We studied four patients in California who were identified as being infected with a similar protozoal parasite. All four patients had undergone splenectomy, three because of trauma and one because of Hodgkin's disease. Two of the patients had complicated courses, and one died.
"Serum from three of the patients was reactive to WA1 but not to B. microti antigen." PDF

Innate resistance to Babesia infection is influenced by genetic background and gender
Aguilar-Delfin I et al. Infect Immun 2001 Dec;69(12):7955-8.
Our data also show a gender-related influence in resistance to acute babesiosis in mice, with males being more resistant than females. Gender-dependent differences in susceptibility to other parasitic infections have been extensively documented (1). .. PDF
