Blood Test Types
Babesia duncani, also known as WA1, causes symptoms similar to those seen in cases of babesiosis caused by Babesia microti. Most of the documented cases have occurred in the Pacific Northwest.
Babesiosis is a blood infection caused by the parasite, Babesia. In the U.S., it is primarily spread to people by bites from infected blacklegged ticks, also called deer ticks (Ixodes scapularis).
